How do bankruptcy attorneys charge for their services?

Our Professional Answer:

Typically, bankruptcy attorneys will charge two different ways for their services. If you file a Chapter 7, a bankruptcy attorney will typically charge you a fixed fee; meaning, it’s the only fee that you’ll pay to that attorney, and it’s typically paid upfront. If you file a Chapter 13, certain bankruptcy attorneys will allow you to make a down payment and then the attorney’s fees will come out of your planned payments over the next five years.
