Today’s bankruptcy clients want to know that they have options for paying fees, communicating, and managing their documents and information. Offering virtual options as a lawyer is a necessity for better client relationships and smoother workflows.


NextChapter Payments helps you offer greater client flexibility while ensuring you get paid faster in a secure way. Here’s what you need to know about all the payment features and info about our upcoming webinar with Usio.

NextChapter Payments helps you streamline the invoicing and payment processes, helping both you and your clients. Here's what you can do with NextChapter Payments:

  • Set up payment plans for debtors, including custom payment plans for those with unpredictable paydays
  • Process payments, including cards and ACH payments, and record cash or check transactions

NextChapter Payments also includes a helpful client-facing portal. You can invite your clients to the portal when you need to send them an invoice, and they can pay fees right away on the platform. Clients can even create their own payment plans!
