When individuals file for Chapter 7 bankuptcy, the filing fee is $200 in most cases. If filers are unable to pay the fee in full, they also have the option of paying the fee in installments.
However, the full amount of the fee must be paid wthin 120 days of the filing, unless filers can receive an extension from the court. If filers do not pay the fee, then the case could be dismissed, and filers will not receive discharges.
