Too Broke to File?

At Markwell Law, we understand that you’re here for a reason, and that reason is that money is tight. Often, it’s the necessity of having to pay a bankruptcy lawyer that prevents one from filing a bankruptcy, to begin with. Every dollar you had has gone to the essentials, groceries, rent, car payments, credit card bills, and now an attorney? There’s simply not enough. What to do? Know there’s light at the end of this tunnel. There are zero-down options potentially available for qualified individuals in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.

Payment Options Available

If the cost of filing your bankruptcy is preventing you from doing just that, filing a bankruptcy, there may be options available. Generally, those payment options come in one of three forms:

  • Making payments over time
  • Breaking the full payment up into two or three chunks
  • Financing the attorney fee

Financing your Chapter 7 – Zero Down


Generally, you’re going to save a bit of money if you pay the entire fee upfront, but that’s not always easy, we get it. Let us know if you’re interested in discussing payment options and we are certainly happy to do so. Paying for your Chapter 7 after the filing with zero down is a complicated process, but it is possible for qualified applicants. Know that it takes quite a bit of extra explanation and additional paperwork, but it’s what gets you to a clean slate. It’s worth the work.
