Our firm offers a risk free no obligation consultation to go over your options and help you to determine if bankruptcy is the best option for you and your family. If bankruptcy is the best option, the attorney will quote you fees based on your specific situation. By being upfront, honest and detailed during your intake meeting you can keep costs to a minimum by limiting unnecessary issues later.
One cost associated with filing bankruptcy is credit counseling/debtor education. Credit counseling and debtor education are courses that are required to be completed in order to file a bankruptcy and receive a discharge. Our firm works with GreenPath. GreenPath has two ways to complete the courses required. Either you can call GreenPath over the phone, which is $35.00 for the first course and $20 for the second course or the more cost effective option is to go online to GreenPath’s website, which is $25.00 for the first course and $15.00 for the second course.
The next associated cost is for the Credit Report. Other firms charge upwards of $50.00 to pull a credit report. We provide a free credit report once we are retained. Even if you have copies of all of your bills it is important to have a credit report pulled as well to be sure that every creditor receives Notice of your bankruptcy filing.
