The Judicial Conference of the United States Bankruptcy Court voted to increase various bankruptcy court filing fees, including the fees to file bankruptcy petitions.
For most of us, the increase primarily affects the fees consumers pay to file their bankruptcy cases. They are increasing by $7.00.
Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases: The filing fee is increasing from $299 to $306.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy cases: The filing fee is increasing from $274 to $281.
Filing Adversary Proceeding: Increase from $250 to $293
Filing Motion for Relief from Stay: Increase from $150 to $176
There are other miscellaneous fee increases as well: Full Schedule of Bankruptcy Court Fees and Charges Effective November 1, 2011 .
In my Bankruptcy Update back in February 2006, I wrote that the filing fees were increasing again.
