How Much Does Bankruptcy Cost?
As San Diego debt relief lawyers, we offer a free, no obligation consultation. Generally, fees start at $800.00 for a Chapter 7 and more for Chapter 13, but every situation is different depending on the amount of debt and type of debt, whether there are pending law suits, etc. There are many factors that need to be considered by your San Diego bankruptcy lawyers, but you should be very weary about high priced bankruptcy lawyers as well as oddly low priced ones.
We advise potential clients to be very weary of those big advertisers you see on TV and hear on the radio. They will charge you much more than is necessary for your San Diego bankruptcy because they have to pay for all that advertising. You will not get any better legal representation. In fact, your bankruptcy experience will probably be less than personal.
Also, be very careful if you choose to do your San Diego bankruptcy yourself. Many of the forms are confusing and require specialized legal knowledge. Also, you will want representation at the meeting of creditors as well as when any creditor objects to your claim. It is just not worth the risk to file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 on your own.
Finally, be careful of businesses that charge very low rates for San Diego bankruptcy filings. 99% of the time these people are not lawyers, but rather paralegals or document preparers. They cannot represent you in court, leaving you to fend for yourself if the need arises. Further, if your case is even remotely complicated, they will not have legal knowledge to advise you properly. These people are prohibited from giving legal advice.
