At its September 2011 session, the Judicial Conference increased the “Title 11 Administrative Fee” from $39.00 to $46.00. Because the Administrative Fee is a component of the total fee for filing a bankruptcy petition, the total petition filing fee will increase in each chapter by $7.00 beginning November 1, 2011. Currently, the filing fee for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy is $299. This will increase to $306 on November 1st. Likewise, filing fees for a Chapter 13 bankruptcy will increase from $274 to $281 beginning November 1st. These are not huge increases in fees, but it is a fee that continues to go up, making it more expensive for anyone to file for bankruptcy. If you need to file bankruptcy, it is worth your time to visit with a bankruptcy lawyer in the month of October before the new fees take effect.
