$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.
Most clients who choose to pay part of their attorney's fee through their Chapter 13 Plan pay $1,500 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 the balance through their 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.
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.
If you are an Upright Law client, you have paid your attorney's fee and your filing fee through them.

A bank-certified check is acceptable. You will receive a receipt.
