Paying Filing Fee in Installments

Individual debtors applying to pay the filing fee in installments must comply with the requirements of Local Rule 1006-1, including that an initial payment of AT LEAST $50.00 must accompany the petition. The clerk will not accept any voluntary petition presented for filing by a debtor which is accompanied by a Local Form "Application to Pay Filing Fees in Installments" if filing fees remain due from any previous case filed by that debtor unless the application is accompanied by payment of all previously due fees. [See Local Rule 1002-1(B)(1); chapter 13 debtors also see Local Rule 9013-1(E)(3).]
