Amendments to the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule - Effective June 01, 2014

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

At its March 2014 session, the Judicial Conference approved two amendments to the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule, which go into effect June 1, 2014.

First, the Judicial Conference approved an increase to the adversary filing fee in bankruptcy proceedings. The new fee will be equivalent to the filing fee for civil cases in the district courts, $350, an increase of $57 from the current bankruptcy adversary filing fee of $293. Second, the Conference approved increases to the administrative fee (currently $46) assessed at filing in every bankruptcy case. As revised, separate administrative fees will apply to cases filed under the six different chapters of the Bankruptcy Code: a $75 fee for Chapter 7, 12, and 13 cases, and a $550 fee for Chapter 9, 11, and 15 cases.
