U.S. BANKRUPTCY COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NORTH DAKOTA BROADCAST SUMMARY:
March 24 , 2006

Due to the enactment of the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (Pub.L. No. 109-171) there will be fee increases.
Effective April 9, 2006.

Chapter 7: $299.00
$245 filing fee, $39 administrative fee, $15 case trustee surcharge

Chapter 13: $274.00
$235 filing fee, $39 administrative fee

Chapter 11: No Change from $1,000
It appears that Congress intended to increase chapter 11 filing fees from $1,000 to $2,750. However, there is a drafting error in the language of the Deficit Reduction Act which references the incorrect statutory subsection. Thus, the chapter 11 fee, at this time, is unaltered. We will keep you apprised of Congress's actions to address this drafting error.

Conversion of Chapter 7 to Chapter 11: $755.00
The difference between the filing fee for a chapter 11 ($1,000) and the statutory fee for filing a chapter 7 case ($245)

Conversion of Chapter 13 to Chapter 11: $765.00
The difference between the statutory filing fee for a chapter 11 case ($1,000) and the statutory fee for filing a chapter 13 case ($235)
