What Does It Cost to File Bankruptcy in Georgia?

Understanding the Factors That Contribute to the Cost of Bankruptcy

One thing that surprises some people about bankruptcy is that it costs money to file. Of course, bankruptcy is a legal process, and there are costs involved in any legal process. The good news is that these costs are vastly outweighed by the benefit of wiping out your debts.

At Gingold & Gingold LLC, we are committed to being as upfront as possible about the costs of filing bankruptcy in Georgia, without creating misleading expectations. Generally, the amount of money you can expect to pay to file bankruptcy will be based on the following factors:

  • Court costs: In order to file bankruptcy, you must pay a filing fee to the court. There are separate fees for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy, and these fees do occasionally increase, which means that much of the information you find online may be out of date.
  • Legal fees: We set our fees based on the type and complexity of each case we handle. We do not publish one fee online and then charge people something else. We offer a free initial consultation so we can assess the facts of your case and quote you a fee.
  • Credit counseling: Under the federal bankruptcy laws, anyone filing bankruptcy must participate in a court-approved credit counseling course. There are a number of providers that offer this service at relatively low prices, usually by telephone or online. We will help you find a reliable provider.

If you are behind on your credit card payments, you are facing foreclosure or you have any other problems with debt, the benefits you gain by using the bankruptcy laws to your fullest advantage with the help of an experienced lawyer will likely be far greater than these costs.

Our attorneys — Ira D. Gingold, who has been a bankruptcy lawyer since 1971 and Court-appointed Bankruptcy Trustee from 1971-2013, and Jamie L. Gingold, who has been practicing bankruptcy, real estate and business law since 2001 — can help you achieve those benefits.

    They did an excellent job with my case. Jamie took the time to really listen and understand things. She delved into the details and was extremely knowledgeable and non judgmental. Very professional and they know what they are doing. Would definitely recommend!

    Mr. Gingold was recommended by an attorney I had worked with previously. I met with Ira Gingold to discuss credit issues. He went over each specific issue thoroughly. He advised me of the potential outcomes. He did all this in one meeting for a very reasonable price. When we finished I was confident in moving forward with a resolution. He definitely wants to help people take the appropriate course of action for their circumstance.

    Dear Mr Gingold, There are so many reasons to be thankful for all you have done and will do. Anyone who has ever had unfavorable experiences with an attorney or the legal system will feel the trepidation that I experienced once I realized that my situation seemed hopeless. It was by chance and happily good luck that I decided to put my future and sanity into your hands. I was mortified at having to deal with my debts by claiming bankruptcy. I remember in our first meeting how you assured me that I was not alone and should not feel ashamed. And, anyone in this position obviously does not have money to spare and you were clear about all the costs and allowing me to pay according to my own ability to do so. You advised me in all aspects of the law, but also, you were at each meeting incredibly supportive and complementary of my personal and professional plans. Anyone else in this situation should feel blessed to have access to your expertise and support.

    I thought the process of filing bankruptcy was going to be a difficult one. However, Gingold & Gingold treated me with respect and dignity from the moment I walked through their door. I had the pleasure of working with Jamie. She is very responsive, professional, and knowledgeable. She took the time and listened to my every concern and handled each and every one of them to my satisfaction. My experience with filing bankruptcy under Gingold & Gingold's representation exceeded my expectations in a major way. They gave me such a peace of mind. I am very pleased with my decision of going with Gingold & Gingold to represent me when I filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

    Wow! I am finally out of debt and can say that I am debt free after completing my chapter 7 bankruptcy case with Gingold and Gingold. Mr dangled was very knowledgeable and direct with regard to my debt situation. there were no surprises and the case went as I was advised. The staff was also very helpful whenever I had a question. I will definitely recommend them in the future to my friends.

    I cannot say enough about this law firm. From the initial consultation to our discharge, the entire office kept me updated with every step of the entire process. I came to the Gingold after a bad experience with another law firm. Ira and Jamie immediately began treating me like family through this experience. In the end, they assisted with eliminating many debts including my 2nd mortgage. I cannot say enough about the experience and knowledge that Ira brought to the table from the office visits to the court time. Thank you very much for helping me through this tough time. Thank you.
