- Chapter 13 filing fees: $313.00
Cost For A Chapter 7 Bankruptcy In Colorado
Most Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyers in Colorado charge a flat fee. What that means is that you’ll pay a single fee for the entire bankruptcy process that covers all of the related expenses, like the court filing fee, required online classes, and costs of a credit report.
An experienced bankruptcy lawyer should quote that fee before you hire him or her. Most Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyers also require the entire fee to be paid before your case gets filed. So, if you’re being garnished, for example, that won’t stop until your case has been prepared and filed and all of your fees have been paid.
Cost For A Chapter 13 Bankruptcy In Colorado
Chapter 13 fees work differently than Chapter 7. Whereas, for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy all fees must be paid up front, Chapter 13 bankruptcy lawyers in Colorado usually requires clients to pay a portion of their fees before the case is prepared and filed and then the remaining fees will come out of the monthly payment that Chapter 13 filers pay every month to the Chapter 13 trustee. Overall, Chapter 13 bankruptcy fees are typically much higher than they are for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Chapter 13 bankruptcy is much more complex, and your lawyer will be involved with your case from three to five years.
