New Court Fee Schedule effective November 1, 2011

It seems today that everything costs more from gasoline to groceries. As of November 1, 2011, you can add bankruptcy to list of items that are costing you more. The Judicial Conference of the United States has increased various fees that become effective November 1, 2011. Included in the increase is the filing fee for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy which will increase from $299.00 to $306.00 and the filing fee for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy which will increase from $274.00 to $281.00. It may only be $7.00 more in court costs to file bankruptcy, but when you are struggling $7.00 can feel more like $100.00.

The Judicial Conference states the increase is due to the need for increased revenue to balance their budget. There is a lesson to be learned for all of us. Long ago I heard that when you are hard pressed for cash, you have to do one of two things: 1) Spend less or 2) Earn more. As a Waco bankruptcy attorney, I see more people trying Option #1 by cutting their expenses to balance their budget. However, getting a second job or selling items on e-bay are ways to increase your income under Option #2. The Judicial Conference selected Option #2. Do you have the ability to get a second job or do you have something to sell?

If you have tried both options and you still have more month at the end of your money, call today at 254-633-2876 or email me at [email protected] for a FREE no-obligation consultation. Maybe you might find an Option #3?
