Zero-Down Legal Plan

The Philadelphia Chapter 7 bankruptcy lawyers at Sadek & Cooper Law Offices are dedicated to protecting your financial future through the Zero-Down Legal Plan

Let’s face it, one of the first questions to come up when you make the decision to file for bankruptcy is “How much does it cost to file for bankruptcy?”

If you are already struggling to pay off debts or a mortgage, it can be hard to imagine adding another monthly bill onto your growing stack. Sadek and Cooper prides itself on helping those in financial need and we realize that paying legal fees can be an obstacle to your fresh financial start. That is why our legal advocates worked with your community to launch the Zero-Down Bankruptcy payment plan! In addition to our affordable payment plans our law offices now offers a $0 down legal fee structure for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filings.  

The zero-down option allows a bankruptcy filer(s) to achieve the fresh start he or she needs immediately and defer the legal fee payments over time in a routine Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing.

What do I need for a Chapter 7 bankruptcy?

Generally, a routine Chapter 7 Bankruptcy involves at least the following legal tasks: 

  • Gathering relevant financial information
  • Reviewing a credit report
  • Preparing a 50 plus page petition and applicable schedules
  • Analyzing applicable exemptions
  • Reviewing the Petition with the client(s)
  • Filing the Petition with the Court
  • Attendance at a Section “341” meeting

What does a Zero-Down Chapter 7 Bankruptcy involve?

The no money down option necessitates that an attorney-client fee agreement is signed for pre-petition work – which consists first in the filing of a skeleton Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Petition and then a second or post-petition attorney fee agreement for legal fees earned to facilitate the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy matter until discharge.

The legal fees for the above work are generally collected over a period of 12 months in a zero-down plan. However, fees may be satisfied in a shorter period of time. The bankruptcy filer is responsible for the court fees and case costs prior to filing a zero-down legal plan Chapter 7 matter. Our law firm receives $0.00 in legal fees prior to the filing of the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Petition – saving you cash and helping you focus on a better tomorrow.
