How much will it cost to file for bankruptcy?

One of the several things that you cannot discharge in a bankruptcy is the fees it costs you to file. The actual filing fee is around $200, but you will probably need the services of a competent attorney (especially if you are filing Chapter 13), which can run you another $500 to $1000 for Chapter 7, or $1000 to $1500 for Chapter 13. The attorney’s fee, however, can be discharged during your bankruptcy, which is why your attorney will most likely ask for the entire fee up front.
