$1,500 + $335 = $1,835
$1,835 is the total fee that most of our Chapter 7 clients pay. It includes the $1,500 attorney's fee plus the required filing fee of $335, which we pay on your behalf to the court. The attorney's fee includes the cost of filing imposed by our software, and it covers the cost of a three-bureau credit report that we run on all of our bankruptcy clients.
You are welcome to pay your Chapter 7 fees in installment payments. However, we will NOT file your case with the bankruptcy court until all fees are paid in full.
$3,000 + $310 = $3,310
Most clients who pay the entire Chapter 13 attorney's fee before we file your petition pay a total of $3,310, which includes the $3,000 attorney's fee plus the filing fee of $310 which we pay to the court on your behalf. The attorney's fee includes the cost of filing imposed by our software, and it covers the cost of a three-bureau credit report that we run on all of our bankruptcy clients.
$3,750 + $310 = $4,050
Most clients who choose to pay part of their attorney's fee through their Chapter 13 Plan pay $2,000 partial attorney's fee plus the filing fee of $310 (which we pay to the court on your behalf) before filing, then complete paying the attorney's fee by paying $1,750 through the Plan. The attorney's fee includes the cost of filing imposed by our software, and it covers the cost of a three-bureau credit report that we run on all of our bankruptcy clients.
$0 + possibly $335
If you come to us through a pro bono agency such as Legal Aid Society, you do not pay an attorney's fee. However, depending on your income, the court may require that you pay their $335 filing fee.
Pro bono services are available ONLY for Chapter 7, and pro bono pricing is available ONLY for clients referred by a pro bono agency such as Legal Aid Society.
We do ask that, if possible, you cover our costs of filing your case, which include a fee imposed by our software and a three-bureau credit report that we run on all of our bankruptcy clients. Exceptions to this are made on a case-by-case basis, and are based on your income as related to your necessary expenses.

Delain Law Office, PLLC asks all clients to provide us with a $125 appointment reservation fee for your initial appointment. This fee is credited toward the cost of your bankruptcy if you choose to work with us; if you choose to go elsewhere, this fee is a consultation fee.
The PayPal.me link to pay this fee is sent to you when you book your appointment with us online. Or you may use this link to pay the fee.
If we cancel your meeting at any time, including within the 24 hours before your appointment, we refund your payment in full. Period.
If you cancel your meeting more than 24 hours in advance, we refund your payment in full. Period.
If you cancel your meeting within the 24 hours preceding your meeting, we refund your payment on a pro rated basis per hour or partial hour. For example, if your appointment is at 11:15 a.m. and you cancel at 9:35 p.m. the night before, you have canceled within the 24 hours preceding your appointment. Your refund would be calculated based on the number of hours between 9:35 p.m. and 11:15 a.m., rounding down. There are 13 hours and 40 minutes between the time you cancel and your appointment; thus, we would refund 13/24 of your payment, rounded up to the next penny (if your refund is, for example, $24.151, we refund $24.16).
If you do not cancel and do not show, no refund is available.
