Finally, a response from a MD attorney. The reason I am asking is because I keep getting different answers, from both attorneys and online. (1) "Some courts limit preparer fees to $150 to $250. But there's no cap in Maryland, and fees can range from $100 to $700 for a few hours' work. In comparison, a lawyer in Maryland may charge $500 to $3,000 for a simple Chapter 7 bankruptcy, says Brett Weiss, a Greenbelt lawyer." - The Baltimore Sun, 6/26/12; (2) "The Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan limits a preparer from charging more than $100 without filing a request with the court. Likewise, the Northern District of California limits preparer fees to $150, along with publishing guidelines specifying what a petition preparer may and may not do. " - Bankr. Law Network - I don't care about different districts; I need to know what the fee is in MD. (3) an attorney called me 3 days ago saying he had just heard the maximum allowable fee in MD is now $100. (4) I have looked on the U.S. Trustee's website for MD and see nothing indicating BPPs can only charge $100.
