Filing Fee Increases Effective December 1, 2020

At its March 2020 session, the Judicial Conference approved inflationary fee adjustments to the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (28 U.S.C. ยง 1930). The approved adjustment to the Administrative Fee will increase the fee to file a petition under all chapters and to file a motion to divide a joint case. Note that the increase to the administrative fee for filing a bankruptcy petition is only one portion of the total filing fee.

The new filing fees for the most common petitions are: Chapter 7, $338; Chapter 11, $1738; Chapter 13, $313. The changes go into effect December 1, 2020. Please see the attachment below for the list of fee changes.
