Minneapolis_MN_Bankruptcy_Lawyer_Cost_It is natural to want to know how much a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy costs. What are the attorney’s fees and court costs? It can feel a little bit like getting smacked when you are already down. But let’s walk through a typical scenario. Let’s assume you have 50k in unsecured debt that is causing you an enormous headache. You decide to file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy and get your life back which is a smart move. Let’s assume further that your payments on the 50k in debt was $2400.00 per month. Finally, let’s assume you have 3 judgments that have already been entered against you.

At Kain & Scott, we charge you a total of $1,975.00 if you pay us up front. This includes $1,600.00 in attorney fees, and $375.00 for court filing fees, credit counseling courses, and credit reports etc. Now, if you would rather make payments to us after filing the bankruptcy case, you are required to get a third party to sign a third party guarantee for a total of $2,000.00 in attorney fees. You are required to pay the $375.00 up front because those are costs. But the balance of the attorney fees can be paid at 100/200 per month assuming someone signs a promissory note for you for $2,000.00.

However, we also give all clients a FREE 90 Day Credit Repair Program (a $3,250.00 value for free). In this program we remove judgments for no attorney fees, you only pay nominal costs. Most attorneys charge anywhere between $400-750 per judgment to remove a judgment. If you get charged $600.00 a piece to remove 3 judgments that is an extra $1,800.00 dollars! In comparison to others, our fees are very reasonable for what you receive.
