If you cannot afford to pay the filing fee either in full at the time of filing or in installments, you may request a waiver of the filing fee by completing Official Form 3B - Application for Waiver of Chapter 7 Filing Fee, and filing it with the Clerk of Court. A judge will decide whether you have to pay the fee. By law, the judge may waive the fee only if your income is less than 150 percent of the official poverty line applicable to your family size and you are unable to pay the fee in installments. Please review the 2014 Poverty Guidelines to determine if you are eligible for a waiver.
