How much is the filing fee in a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Chicago

As of early 2014, the filing fee for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case is $306.00 in the Northern District of Illinois (basically, Chicago area). This is a one time charge that has nothing to do with your lawyer's fee and is strictly for the court. It is paid when your bankruptcy case is filed. When planning for the cost of bankruptcy, also remember to factor in your attorney fee and the cost of required credit counseling sessions.
