1 The Court accepts cash, checks, money orders, American Express, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover/Novus. Debtors’ personal checks and credit cards will not be accepted when filing a petition. W e do not accept party checks. A voluntary petition by an individual or an individual and spouse may be paid in no more than four (4)installments, upon application to the Court.
2 The fee for filing a petition consists of a filing fee, an administrative fee, and, for chapter 7 petitions, a trustee surcharge, combined here for simplicity.
3 This is a mandatory fee in addition to the fee for appeals and cross appeals. It is due upon filing and may not be waived or deferred.
4 The fee for requesting a direct appeal or cross appeal from a bankruptcy court decision to the Court of Appeals is $298 ($293 appeal fee + $5 notice of appeal fee). If the Court of Appeals authorizes the direct appeal, an additional fee of $207 is due to the Bankruptcy Court.
5 No fee is charged when the conversion order is made on its own by the court (i.e., sua sponte), in the absence of a notice or request of a party. The fee to convert to Chapter 11 is payable upon conversion, rather than upon filing.
6 The exemption from paying the fee to reopen a case applies in only two situations: (1) reopening a case to permit a party to file a complaint to obtain a determination under Rule 4007(b); or (2) reopening a case when a creditor is violating the terms of the discharge under 11 U.S.C. § 524. The court may defer payment of the fee from trustees pending discovery of additional assets. The court will waive a deferred fee when no additional assets are discovered.
7 There is no fee to change the address of a listed creditor, or to add/change the name and address of a listed creditor’s attorney.
8 Generally, $64 fee for the retrieval of one box of records, $39 for the retrieval of each additional box.
9 $3.00 maximum charge per document.
