Chapter 7 is the most common type of individual bankruptcy. Unlike in Chapter 13, you do not pay part of your debts back in monthly installments. If you qualify for Chapter 7 and comply with the procedures and disclosure requirements, most of your debts will be discharged.
At the Crossley Law Offices we charge an affordable, fair and reasonable flat fee to prepare and file your Chapter 7 bankruptcy for you. While many other Massachusetts lawyers are charging between $1,900 and $2,200 (not including Court filing fees and other costs) for a consumer Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, we charge only $1,500. Why is our fee so much lower than other law firms? Because it’s a fair and reasonable fee to charge people who are struggling through increasingly difficult economic times.
Including the mandatory Bankruptcy Court filing fee and other expenses (see above) the total cost to you is only about $1,900. Most other attorneys are charging between $1,900 and $2,200 for the very same service.

Qualifying for Chapter 7:
Only people who cannot afford their debts are eligible for Chapter 7. So, you must qualify. The general rule is that if you can afford to pay part of your debts, you must do so in Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which has many advantages of its own.
