Office of the Clerk United States Bankruptcy Court Eastern District of California

FEES COMMONLY CHARGED BY THE BANKRUPTCY COURT 1
The Bankruptcy Court will accept cash (exact change only), and money orders, cashier's checks, attorney or law firm checks, and traveler's checks payable to Clerk, U.S. Bankruptcy Court for payment of fees. The Court does not accept personal checks (other than attorney checks), checks drawn on a debtor's account while the case is open prior to discharge, second or third party checks, and checks or money orders for more than the amount due. Please do not send cash through the mail.

NOTES 1. The reopening fee should be charged when a case is closed without a discharge being entered. The reopening fee will not be charged if the reopening is necessary: (1) to permit a party to file a complaint to obtain a determination under Rule 4007(b); or (2) when a creditor is violating the terms of the discharge under 11 U.S.C. 524. The court may waive this fee under appropriate circumstances or may defer payment of the fee from trustees pending discovery of additional assets. If payment is deferred, the fee shall be waived if no additional assets are discovered. See Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (Effective October 1, 2008) item 11. No fee is required when the nature of the amendment is to change the address of a creditor or an attorney for a creditor listed on the schedules or to add the name and address of an attorney for a listed creditor. See Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (Effective October 1, 2008) item 4. The clerk must collect both a notice of appeal fee of $5, and an appeal docketing fee of $250 when a party files an appeal in a bankruptcy case or proceeding. If a trustee or debtor in possession is the appellant, the $250 appeal docketing fee is payable only from the estate and to the extent there is any estate realized. See Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (Effective October 1, 2008) item 14. This exception does not apply to the $5.00 notice of appeal fee authorized by 28 U.S.C. 1930(c). This fee is in addition to the $255 due upon the filing of an appeal or cross appeal, and shall be payable to the Bankruptcy Court when the Court of Appeals authorizes a direct appeal or a direct cross appeal. If a debtor is the plaintiff, the fee must not be charged. If a child support creditor or its representative files the complaint and submits the form required by 304(g) of the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1994, the fee must not be charged. If a trustee or debtor-in-possession is the plaintiff, the fee should be payed by the estate if there is an estate. See Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (Effective October 1, 2008) item 6. For cross appeals, the clerk must collect both a notice of appeal fee of $5, and an appeal docketing fee of $250. If a trustee or debtor in possession is the appellant, the $250 appeal docketing fee is payable only from the estate and to the extent there is any estate realized. See Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (Effective October 1, 2008) item 14. This exception does not apply to the $5.00 notice of appeal fee authorized by 28 U.S.C. 1930(c). The fee for filing an adversary proceeding is due whether a party files the action in bankruptcy court originally or a party removes the action to bankruptcy court from another forum. Thus, when a party files a notice of removal, the clerk must collect the prescribed fee for filing an adversary proceeding, and the exceptions to payment accorded a plaintiff shall apply to a removing party. Consequently, if a debtor files the notice of removal, the fee must not be charged. If a child support creditor or its representative files the notice of removal and submits the form required by 304(g) of the Bankruptcy Reform Act of 1994, the fee must not be charged. If a trustee or debtor-in-possession files the notice of removal, the fee should be payed by the estate if there is an estate. See Bankruptcy Court Miscellaneous Fee Schedule (Effective October 1, 2008) item 6.
