Pricing and Process for Bankruptcy Services

Step 1: Complete our Bankruptcy Intake Form

Begin your journey towards financial freedom by filling out our bankruptcy intake form. Once we have your completed intake form, we will check for conflicts and send you a link for payment of our consultation fee. Once that is paid, we will set up a phone/Zoom consultation with Lisa Thompson.

Consultation fees:

  • $250 for individuals
  • $375 for individuals that have businesses

If you go forward, your the consultation fee is applied to any additional fees, essentially making the consult free.

If bankruptcy is not right for you and you decide not to proceed, you get great information. Why do we charge consultation fees?

Get Started with Your Bankruptcy Intake:

IF YOU HAVE A PENDING GARNISHMENT, LAWSUIT OR FORECLOSURE WITHIN THE NEXT 60 DAYS, PLEASE CALL OR EMAIL US AND LET US KNOW IMMEDIATELY BEFORE PROCEEDING. We handle emergency matters only as time permits and our availability.

Step 2: Initial Personal Consultation

During your no-obligation consultation with Lisa Thompson, she will discuss ALL of your bankruptcy and non-bankruptcy options for handling your debt. Sometimes bankruptcy is right for you and sometimes not. Sometimes bankruptcy is right later. Your consultation will give you the information you need to make the right decisions about your finances for you and your family. Our goal in the consultation is to provide you information as well as peace of mind.

Step 3: Documentation and Case Preparation

After your consultation, should you choose to proceed, we will provide you with a comprehensive list of documents and information needed to prepare your bankruptcy case.

The main documents we will need are:

  • The last 2 years of STATE and FEDERAL tax returns
  • The last 6 months of your pay stubs and/or any other income your received in the last 6 months
  • The last 4 months of bank statements for every bank account that you own
  • Your last mortgage/vehicle statement(s) for any real property or vehicle you own

Once you have provided us with ALL of the requested documents and our completed questionnaire, we will prepare your case for you to review.

During this time, you will need to take your Credit Counseling Class online or by phone. We will provide you with the information to do so. Don’t worry, it really is more like a questionnaire and not a class.

Step 4: Bankruptcy Costs and Fees

Attorney’s Fees

The attorney fees for filing a bankruptcy vary based on the complexity and type of case. We require payment of attorney fees and costs before we file your bankruptcy case. Please see our FAQs for additional information on fees. DON’T STRESS we will help you with a plan for payment of fees during your initial consultation. The actual hard costs for bankruptcy are:

Filing Fees

  • Chapter 7 Bankruptcy: $338
  • Chapter 13 Bankruptcy: $313
  • Chapter 11, Subchapter V Bankruptcy: $1,738

Costs to obtain Credit Reports

  • Individual: $45
  • Married Couple: $90

Costs for Credit Counseling/Financial Management Classes

  • There is a class that you must take prior to filing any type of bankruptcy (Credit Counseling) and one that you take after you have filed your case (Financial Management). They are really just online questionnaires that you may also complete by phone. You will take these classes with a court approved provider and pay for them directly. Costs vary from $9 – $15 per class depending on the provider.

Please note that attorney’s fees and filing fees are separate charges. Filing fees are fixed, but attorney’s fees vary by case. Chapter 13 bankruptcies have additional fees after the bankruptcy filing, but those are paid through the bankruptcy plan as part of the Chapter 13 plan payment.

Payment Policy

Due to the nature of bankruptcy, we do not accept credit card payments for any bankruptcy services. Payments can be made in other ways, which will be discussed during your initial consultation. Please see our FAQs for additional information on fees.

Step 5: Filing Your Case

Once all documents are prepared and fees are paid, you will again have a call with Lisa Thompson to discuss any questions or concerns that you may have after reviewing your bankruptcy documents. Once you are comfortable with your bankruptcy filing, we will file it electronically with the court. This will start your journey to your fresh start.
