Periodically the filing fees in U.S. federal and state courts in Colorado change. The District of Colorado Bankruptcy Court will be increasing its fees for filing and general services. The new rates took effect June 1, 2014.
Some of the more common filing fees are now as follows for common types of cases/ issues: Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Colorado $335, Chapter 13 Bankruptcy in Colorado $ 310, Chapter 11 $1717, filing an adversary proceeding $350, filing an amendment to add creditors $30, and a motion to reopen a Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Colorado now costs $260 to file.
Preparation is the key to success in any legal matter, and meeting with your bankruptcy lawyer as soon as possible to determine the appropriate chapter of the Bankruptcy Code to use, and which fee(s) will apply, will help your case go smoothly right from the beginning.
