I have previously discussed fees associated with both Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. As of November 1, 2011, those fees are going to increase for the first time in several years.
The filing fee for filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy or Chapter 13 Bankruptcy will increase by $7. For Chapter 7, the filing fee will increase from $299 to $306. The Chapter 13 filing fee will rise from $274 to $281. The Court Clerk for the Western District of New York announced changes in the filing fees on the bankruptcy court’s website on October 17, 2011. The cost of filing an adversary proceeding and various motions is rising as well.
