File for Free

Need to file bankruptcy? Can’t afford the chapter 7 bankruptcy $335 filing fee? You can ask the courts to waive your filing fee. To find out if you qualify use the charts below. You will ahve to be 150% or below the federal poverty guidelines. In order to figure this out take the annual income for your household size and divide it by two. Then take that number and add it back to the annual household income for your size. If your household makes less than this then you qualify to have the filing fee waived. For example, if the annual household income was $10,000 you divide this by two to get $5,000, then you add the original amount of $10,000 back to it for a total of $15,000. So if your annual household income was below $15,000 you would qualify.
