If you’re considering filing for bankruptcy, you might be wondering how you can afford to pay legal fees for your case. Bankruptcy lawyers understand that their clients come to them in difficult financial circumstances. Your bankruptcy attorney can work with you to reach a reasonable arrangement.
If you’re filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, your legal fees will likely be based on the complexity of your case and the extent of your assets. These fees are usually paid before the petition is filed, since a bankruptcy would eliminate the fees. If you’re filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can expect to pay an upfront fee. However, the rest of the fees may be included in your bankruptcy repayment plan.
