Fees for filing a Chapter 11 bankruptcy case will increase for cases filed on or after November 21, 2012. The fee increase was included in the Temporary Bankruptcy Judgeships Extension Act of 2012 (Pub. L. No. 112-121) (pdf), which was signed into law by the President on May 25, 2012.

A provision in the law increases the statutory filing fee for all new Chapter 11 cases to $1,167. The total fee for filing a Chapter 11 case will increase to $1,213 (statutory fee of $1,167 under 28 U.S.C. § 1930(a)(3) plus the administrative fee of $46 under Item 8 of the Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule).
