Get Your Case Filed for $200 + Costs

(Remaining fees financed post filing. See below for a detailed explanation.)

At the Law Office of Alexander D. Sanchez we are committed to offering the best value in consumer bankruptcies in Arizona. We can file your Chapter 7 case for as low as $200 in legal fees before filing. We do this by splitting our representation agreement into two parts. The first part covers pre-filing services and the second part covers post filing services. The total legal fees for any given case (if you elect to hire us for post filing work) are listed below. For example, if you qualify for basic Chapter 7 representation, then the pre-filing cost is $200. The second agreement, which you can elect to sign post filing, would be for $495 as an installment agreement for a total fee of $695 (costs excluded).


We can file your Chapter 13 case for as low as $800 in legal fees before filing. Remaining legal fees are paid through your repayment plan with the Court.

We invite you to schedule a free case evaluation and meet directly with attorney Alex Sanchez who will carefully discuss your options in bankruptcy. There is never any high pressure sales as Mr. Sanchez is committed to providing you the best service possible and make your journey through this process as comfortable as possible.

For most Chapter 7 cases, we can file your case for just $200 in legal fees plus a $335 bankruptcy court filing fee for a total of $535. This fee covers the pre-filing work we do in your case including filing your voluntary petition, credit counseling and list of creditors with the Court.
If you elect to continue representation with our firm after the initial filing, then we can offer a monthly payment plan as low as $75/bi-weekly for post filing work.
For most Chapter 13 cases, we can file your case for just $800 in legal fees plus a $310 bankruptcy court filing fee for a total of $1035. The remainder of our fees can usually be paid through your Chapter 13 plan payments. Plan payments vary depending on your income, assets and expenses.

PRICING F.A.Q.’s

Yes. Payment plans are available and can be arranged on a case by case basis during the initial free consultation.
The attorney fee must be paid in full before client submits documents for processing and the case is filed with the bankruptcy court.
If your income is at or below 150% of the poverty line for your household size, then you may qualify to get the Court filing fee waived. The bankruptcy Judge assigned to your case will make the ultimate determination as to whether your fee is waived. It has been our experience that very few cases will qualify for a Court fee waiver. However, if your application to waive the fee is denied, the Court will issue an approximately 3 month payment plan on the filing fee.
Yes, so long as you have never previously had a case dismissed due to failure to pay the Court filing fee. Prior to filing the Court will require a minimum $50 deposit. The rest is generally payable within the 2 to 3 months. Failure to pay the filing fee may result in the dismissal of your case.
