It comes as no surprise that the cost of bankruptcy is always a concern for our visitors. When you’re considering bankruptcy, your finances are always tight, and you may not have money on hand to pay for attorney fees.

Bankruptcy attorneys in Georgia have a variety of tools at their disposal to help.

How much does it cost to File Bankruptcy in Georgia?

Bankruptcy fees vary wildly from state to state, and even within Georgia fees will be quite different based on a few factors:

  • Which attorney you select: Two bankruptcy attorneys in the same city may charge different fees for the same service. Be sure to speak to multiple attorneys before hiring one!
  • Where you live: A bankruptcy attorney in Atlanta may charge more than one in a rural area, for example.
  • What kind of bankruptcy you are filing: Filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy tends to be quicker than filing for Chapter 13 bankruptcy. This holds true in Georgia as well as the country in general.
  • The details of your situation: What kinds of assets you own, what debts you owe, whether you have a family, etc. There are countless details of your personal situation that can impact your bankruptcy options.

A typical range may run from $700 for a simple Chapter 7 up to $2,000 for a Chapter 13. We recommend you use our free case evaluation as a way to find multiple attorneys in your area. Each attorney will offer a free consultation which will help you learn more about bankruptcy, and given your situation they should be able to give you a quote for your case.

Average Cost of Bankruptcy in Georgia

The range of costs described above is a good starting point. Because of the variance we discussed above, it is difficult to pinpoint an average cost of bankruptcy in Georgia. It may be annoying to speak to a number of attorneys to get this information, but that really is the best way to go about it.

You can speak to family and friends who live in the same area as you to see if they have any experience to share. But even if they do, keep in mind that costs may have changed since they filed bankruptcy, and their situation is likely different from yours in some ways. Don’t assume any prices you see (even those on this website) are accurate until you have spoken to an attorney!
