Therefore, the cost will be the same regardless of the trustee you choose to work with.

Once you have used this bankruptcy calculator you will have a good idea of the filing bankruptcy cost and whether you will have surplus income levels over the income thresholds.

Having surplus income will increase the time you are in bankruptcy as well as the cost of your bankruptcy.

The basic cost of filing bankruptcy is $200 per month, although debtors with surplus income might have to pay substantially more for a longer period of time.

In order to learn more about the cost of filing bankruptcy please consider scheduling an initial consultation with one of our friendly licensed insolvency trustees.
