Fee Structure

If you can show a comparable company with lower fees than us, then email Preston Johanson at preston@oakviewlaw.com, and we will provide you the same services at 50% of the fees of the other company.

Debt Settlement and Debt Consolidation Fees

1. A consultancy fee of $50 will be charged each month for providing a monthly 30 minutes consultation with our savings consultant, 30 minutes consultation with budgeting consultant and 30 minutes consultation with the tax attorney. This fee will be adjusted with the success fee when the success fee becomes payable. For example, if the client owes $1000 as success fee and the total consultant fee for 12 months is $600, then in this particular case, client has to pay $400 towards the success fee ($1000-$600) as the consultancy fee will be adjusted with the success fee amount.

Why our clients need a savings and budget consultant?

1. Savings and budget consultants help get rid of the cause of the debt.

2. A success fee of 25% of the amount by which any of client’s debts is reduced, will be charged. For example, if client owes $10,000 on an account and OVLG negotiates a reduction on that account to $6,000, that is savings worth $4,000, then OVLG’s success fee for that account is 25% of $4,000, i.e $1,000. To calculate the success fee, we will consider the original amount owed by the client at the time of enrollment.

N.B. * In case, if a payment plan is worked out then we will charge 15% of the total debt amount as our success fees.
* OVLG does not charge any advance fee for settling consumer debts.

Budgeting and bill pay fees

Monthly maintenance fee:
$50 for the first 10 monthly recurring bills.
$5 for each additional bill.

Let's look at an example:
Suppose Stacy has:
A. 2 bills: She will pay OVLG $50 each month for the bill pay service.
B. 10 bills: She will pay OVLG $50 each month for the bill pay service.
C. 12 bills: She will pay OVLG $60 each month for the bill pay service.

Monthly maintenance fee: $39.

Chapter 7 Bankruptcy fees

Chapter 7: $1,800 for most cases (filing fees and credit counseling fees not included).

The fees listed below are statutory filing fees, payable to the bankruptcy court.

Chapter 7 Filing Fee: $306 (additional for discharge of most unsecured debts).

Amendment Fee: $30 per amendment (If you have to make changes to certain documents after initial filing).

Chapter 13 Bankruptcy fees

Chapter 13: $3,000 plus additional amount set by the court.

A lot of our clients sign up for debt management or debt settlement hoping to avoid bankruptcy but while they are in the debt management or debt settlement program their financial situation might become worse. In such a scenario we give them an easy path to bankruptcy. Hence, for both chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies we give up to $500 credit for fees paid towards debt management or debt settlement. Here are some examples of fee credit..

The fees listed below are statutory filing fees, payable to the bankruptcy court.

Chapter 13 Filing Fee: $281 (additional for structured partial repayment plan for debtors who want to keep assets like homes).
