How Much Does It Cost to File a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

Typically, Blue Bee Bankruptcy Law charges an attorney fee of $2,250 to represent a debtor in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy from beginning to end, but we allow you to pay our fee after we file your case over 9 months at no interest.

Our fee can vary, either upward or downward, depending on your financial circumstances.

Our Fast File option allows you to pay only costs of $395 ($432 for joint) (includes the filing fee, credit report, and credit counseling) before filing your case.

Upon filing, you will execute an agreement to pay $250 per month for 9 consecutive months by automatic deduction from your designated bank account.

You can pay these payments following your normal employment pay cycle (i.e. weekly, biweekly, twice monthly).

If you can’t afford $250 per month, we can sometimes work with you to reduce the monthly payment.

Do You Offer Discounts?

We also have a Discounted Option, where you can save $400 if you pay the entire attorney fees of $1,850 plus $395 ($432 for joint) in costs before filing.

If you pay up-front, we save the expense of monitoring monthly payments, and we pass the savings on to you.

Since we know that bankruptcy is just part of the solution, we also implement a proven strategy for rebuilding your credit after bankruptcy.

Similar programs generally cost $1,000, but we provide it to our clients for no additional fee.

Fees and costs are subject to change without notice. Please contact us for details at (801)-285-0980.

Can I Pay My Chapter 7 Attorney Fee in Installments?

Blue Bee Bankruptcy allows its clients to file bankruptcy even before they pay the attorney’s fee.

Do I Have to Qualify for the Installment Option?

Yes, you do, but it’s easy. You have to provide proof of employment or receipt of other regular monthly income, and you must have a bank account.

You must also authorize us to withdraw the monthly installment from that account.

Do I Have to Select the Installment Option?

No, you can pay our entire attorney fee before filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

If you choose to pay the full fee before filing, we will give you a $400 discount.


Because it costs us less money to monitor a bankruptcy case without monthly payments, and we pass that savings along to you.

Do You Offer an Installment Option for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Yes, we do. The Bankruptcy Code allows a debtor to pay attorney fees after the Chapter 13 bankruptcy is filed.

So, we have flexible options for the payment of Chapter 13 attorney fees.

What Are the Other Costs Paid Before Filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

You must provide your last three (3) years of tax returns to the Chapter 7 Trustee overseeing your case.

If you do not have your tax returns handy, we can provide you with instructions to order them directly from the IRS. We’ve learned the returns are received much faster when ordered by the taxpayer.

In summary, you can get your Chapter 7 bankruptcy filed for as little as $395 in costs, with no up-front attorney fees!
