Bankruptcy Court raises fees.

The clerks office for the Northern District of Illinois has announced that the fees the court charges to file a bankruptcy will increase. Effective June 1, 2014, the fee for filing a Chapter 7 will increase from $306.00 to $335.00. As you can see from our website, we include the filing fees in the price we quote. Most firms do not, and quote a lower fee to entice you with an artificial lower price. I have decided to keep my pricing the same and pay the additional fee out of our fees. I hope this will help.


Welcome to our new blog. We will be covering a number of topics that I hope will be helpful to you. Over the past two decades I have seen almost everything, or so I thought. Bankruptcy is an evolving area of law. More exciting is human life itself. I am always amazed at how life throws curve balls at people. But then again, that is why we have these laws.
