Attorneys at Law
The main concern with almost everyone we talk to who is considering bankruptcy is the costs and fees associated with filing for bankruptcy in Alabama. Many attorneys in Alabama, but not us, consider the following factors to determine the fees they will charge you for your Chapter 7 bankruptcy case. Among the factors that they consider are:
- Joint or Single Filing
- Total amount of Debt
- Means test Analysis Work Required
- Number of creditors
- Urgency of the Case-Garnishment, Levy on Bank Account, Emergency Filing
- Anticipated Issues and Problems with the Bankruptcy Case
Our Huntsville bankruptcy law firm considers none of the above when determining our fees. Our Huntsville and Decatur, Alabama bankruptcy attorneys fees are set at $1,000.00 plus court filing fees and costs(credit counseling) for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. One of the lowest fees in Alabama. The filing fee for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case is $335. We do not charge you more if the case is complicated. Once our bankruptcy attorneys have been retained, you can refer all creditor calls to our law office.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Attorneys Fees
