Filing bankruptcy in Los Angeles can be expensive. And, as of June 1, 2014, it will be a little more expensive.
That’s because the court fees for filing bankruptcy in Los Angeles (and the rest of the country) are increasing $29.00 as of June 1st. The filing fee for chapter 7 will now be $335.00, and the filing fee for chapter 13 is increasing to $310.00.
These fee increase will indeed hurt those who are already struggling to meet the costs associated with filing bankruptcy in Los Angeles. Those who qualify may be able to pay the filing fee in installments, or have the fee waived by the court. Here’s more information about installment payments or fee waivers.
