How Much Does it Cost to File Bankruptcy in Connecticut

Hartford, CT Bankruptcy Lawyer Costs

The cost to file bankruptcy in Connecticut  varies greatly. How much does it cost to file bankruptcy in Connecticut  depends on whether you file Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and also on how complicated your case is. At our Farmington, CT bankruptcy practice, we only file Chapter 7 bankruptcy petitions.  We do this for the simple reason that we want people to have an affordable option for Connecticut bankruptcy.  By limiting our services to the straightforward cases, we help more people get rid of more debt as economically as possible.

There is a filing fee for a Chapter 7 of $335.00  The filing fee goes to the Clerk of the court. When we quote you a fee to file your bankruptcy, our quote includes all filing fees for your Hartford, CT Chapter 7 bankruptcy case including court costs, entry fees, and trustee fees.  The fee we quote is what you will pay.

Bankruptcy attorneys will charge a fee for their services in the bankruptcy proceeding. The range of bankruptcy attorney fees charged is almost as varied as the complexity of cases.  Fees can be as high as $10,000 in a complex Chapter 7 or as low as $1,000 for a very simple Chapter 7. My goal is to always provide the most economical attorney prepared Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Connecticut.  No tricks, no scams.  Just an honest low cost, all inclusive Connecticut bankruptcy.

Generally, a Chapter 7 proceeding will be somewhat simpler and therefore usually less expensive than a Chapter 13. However, even a Chapter 7 proceeding can be complex if you run a business, there are very many creditors, liens to be avoided or certain other complications. After your free consultation I will be able to give you an exact amount your case will cost and how the fees can be paid.

Recent fees for a Chapter 7 personal bankruptcy are between $1,600 and $3500  including the filing fees. On the lower end, some attorneys that compete on price alone and sacrifice personal attention to your situation send your case to be “processed” by someone in a third world country. The result can be mistakes and delays, sometimes serious ones. At the Law Offices of James F.
