How much does it cost to file for bankruptcy?

Michigan Bankruptcy Costs

Court's Filing Fee

When filing for bankruptcy,  You will need to fill out a series of local forms to help the court learn more about your debt and why you are filing for bankruptcy in Michigan, regardless of whether you are filing for chapter 13 or chapter 7. You will also need to fill out specific forms for chapter 13 and chapter 7 bankruptcy.

When submitting these documents , you will need to pay a filing fee of $335 for a Chapter 7 or $310 or Chapter 13 to Michigan’s bankruptcy court. The court’s address is 211 W Fort St #2100, Detroit, MI 48226. Once you’ve filed, your debtors cannot bother you while the court processes your case.

Lawyer's Filing Fee
