Bankruptcy Court Fees Increasing Effective November 21, 2012

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

 

Because of the Temporary Bankruptcy Judgeships Extension Act of 2012, the chapter 11 filing fee is increasing.
Due to this increase, other fees in 28 U.S.C. §1930 are also increasing: 

 

  Current Fee  New Fee (as of November 21, 2012)
Chapter 9 Filing Fee $1,000.00 $1,167.00
Chapter 11 Filing Fee $1,000.00 $1,167.00
Chapter 7 to 11 Conversion $755.00 $922.00
Chapter 13 to 11 Conversion $765.00 $932.00
In addition, at its September 2012 session, the Judicial Conference approved changes to the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule:
  Current Fee  New Fee (as of November 21, 2012)
Item No. 11 Fee to Reopen Chapter 11 Case $1,000.00 $1,167.00
