Can you get the filing fee waived when filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Arizona?

I am a bankruptcy attorney in Phoenix ($995/Chapter 7) and our clients frequently have difficulty coming up with the money to pay us and file. In addition to our $995 fee, there is a $306 court filing fee. Sometimes that fee can be waived if someone makes very low income. The guidelines in order to qualify are on the bankruptcy court website here. If your annual income is less than $16,335, which is 150% of the official poverty level, you should be eligible to have the fee waived. That amount increases by family size. If you are a family of four, that level is $33,525. You will need to fill out an application to have it waived, then a judge will decide whether you qualify. For someone who has lost a job, not having to pay that additional fee can be a great relief.
