Cost & Fees

Court Filing Fees

These are the fees charged by the Bankruptcy Court and go to the Bankruptcy Court for the cost of administering your case.

Chapter 7:   $335.00
Chapter 13: $310.00

Credit Counseling Fee

A certficate of credit counseling is required to file a Ch. 7 or Ch. 13 Bankruptcy.  There are many companies that provide this service and the fees range from around $8.00 on up.  At last check, you can obtain the certificate from the site for $25.00 (must use attorney code BTX95313 for that special rate).  Once you take the course and receive the certificate please email it to me at  

Credit Report Fee

A credit report is normally necessary so as to ensure that you have listed all of your creditors in your bankruptcy paperwork. You can pull all three bureaus at for free if you haven’t pulled them in the last 12 months.  DON’T USE THE “GET ALL THREE OPTION”;  this will only give you a summary.  You must get each individual report separately so that you receive all of the pertinent information from the reports.  Please double check your credit reports:  If a debt is not listed, we’ll need the name of the creditor, address, account number, when the debt was incurred and the outstanding balance.  

If you are unable to obtain your reports for free we can obtain all three for a charge of $38.00 for each person filing.  Our service provides the additional benefit of seeing what your credit score will likely be 15 months after filing the bankruptcy.

Attorney Fees

Attorneys fees can vary widely, even within the same city. My advice is to call around and simply ask how much an attorney charges. I can usually give someone a quote over the phone with just a few simple questions. If an attorney is unable or unwilling to give you a quote over the phone then they might realize that their rates aren't competitive and doesn't want to lose potential clients by blowing them out with there prices over the phone. I am proud of my rates and my service and don't mind sharing them with anyone that calls me (405) 255-2380 or EMAIL me.

I require a non-refundable deposit of $300.00 at the time you bring me your documents to begin work on your case.  The balance is due upon filing. Bankruptcy attorneys cannot collect any money from you after you file your case because that debt would be washed away like your other debts.  For this reason all the fees are required to be paid prior to filing your case.  The only other option is for a credit-worthy friend or relative to guarantee the payback of the fees on your behalf.
