Technically, minus a few court fees, filing for bankruptcy is completely free if you want to do it yourself. The problem with filing for bankruptcy yourself is that bankruptcy law is very complicated. Often times people are overwhelmed by the complexity of the process, and it is very easy to make a mistake which could result in your case being thrown out.
Yes, you may be able to file for bankruptcy for free, but if you are at the point where you desperately need it, you may want to consider hiring an experienced attorney. By hiring a bankruptcy attorney you can feel confident in having someone with you when it comes time to meet with creditors and someone to give you legal advice every step of the way.
How Much are Lawyer Fees?
Most attorneys charge anywhere from $250-350 an hour for their services. JacksonWhite is different in that we charge a flat rate for our bankruptcy services. The flat rate depends on what chapter of bankruptcy you are filing for.
- Chapter 7- $1,695 flat fee which covers the 5 month process.
- Chapter 13-$3,500 flat fee that covers the 3-5 year process.
We understand that if you are going through bankruptcy the last thing you need is another bill, but you will find that our fees are significantly lower than other law firms.
Even though our fees are lower than other firms, do not expect for one minute that our services will be compromised. In fact we generally spend more time actually meeting with our clients than most firms do. When you hire an attorney you expect to see them, and at JacksonWhite that is what you get.
