A: The attorney's fees can vary greatly depending on where you live, the type of debts that you have, the amount and types of assets and real estate that you own. Based on what you described, the attorney's fees would probably be about $1,200.00 and the court filing fee is $338.00. There may be something that causes it to be a little more or it could be a little less. It is important to find a qualified and experienced bankruptcy lawyer rather than trying to save a little bit of money. It could cost you more in the long run.
