Fees

Filing fees are due at the time that a petition or pleading is filed with the Court. Attorneys filing electronically are required to settle charges through pay.gov.

Please Note: Effective July 1, 2015, the Gainesville, Newnan and Rome divisional offices will no longer handle any cash payments.  Attorney's checks, cashier's checks and money orders will continue to be accepted. The Atlanta divisional office will continue to accept cash payments, as well as attorney's checks, cashier's checks and money orders. (Personal checks are not an acceptable form of payment.)

If sending a payment by mail, make the cashier's check or money order payable to United States Bankruptcy Court, 75 Ted Turner Drive, SW, Room 1340, Atlanta, Georgia 30303. Do not send cash through the mail. Include your case number with the payment.
