    Answered . Quoting fees on minimal information is meaningless. Your personal circumstances will determine how much time it takes to represent your interests throughout the bankruptcy process. Think of it as though your are asking how much to replace the tires on your vehicle. Without telling us what your vehicle is (Huffy, Harley, Hummer, 18 wheeler), you will not get a meaningful answer. You should consult with an attorney who can assess your particular situation in order to get an answer to your question.
