Changes to the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule

Thursday, November 20, 2014

 

Effective December 1, 2014

    A $50 increase, from $157 to $207, in the fee assessed when a direct appeal from a bankruptcy court is accepted by a Court of Appeals. The new fee brings parity to the fees assessed for other methods of appealing bankruptcy rulings to a Court of Appeals.

    A new $25 per-case filing fee for a motion to redact information from previously filed records in a bankruptcy case.  At the same time, another change clarified that no additional fees will be charged to reopen a closed bankruptcy case where the only purpose for the reopening request is to remove personal identifiers.
