That depends on your Lawyer

as well as how much your filing on.  That varies a lot depending on where you are in the country.  Big city lawyers are more expensive.  They will most likely charge you a basic fee + hours + filing and paperwork fees.  Your best bet is to contact a couple of local lawyers and ask what their fees are for your area.

I suggest that Unless you are filing on a very large amount (some say a years income or more worth of debt) that it isn't worth the cost.  I'd say avoid any kind of bankruptcy because it stays on your report for 10 years and will hold down your score that long.  

Good Luck
