Your Chapter 13 Payment Distribution
The plan payments do not start from your initial court date or Meeting of Creditors. In fact, the first plan payment is actually due one month after the date on which you have filed your case. The payments are typically deducted directly from your paycheck through an Employment Deduction Order which is put in place, except in special circumstances. If there is a delay in deduction, or if your Employment Deduction Order does not function, it is your responsibility to send your plan payment to your trustee as they come due.
Would you like to see how your Chapter 13 trustee payments are being distributed? The National Data Center offers a free service that lets you log on through their website so that you can see how your trustee payments are distributed.
You can count on us to provide you with the key information you need about your case:
- Mortgage payments and direct payments: It is your responsibility to keep up with your mortgage payments and any direct payments for property that you are not surrendering. You should keep all evidence and proof of payments in case a dispute should arise.
- Meeting of Creditors: When your Meeting of Creditors is coming up, you will receive a notice directly from the appropriate Bankruptcy Court. You absolutely must attend this meeting with no exceptions and you must bring the appropriate documentation with you.
- Confirmation hearing: The second hearing in a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy case is called the confirmation hearing, and is also required. This is where the judge will either approve or dismiss the plan which you have put together. You will have an opportunity to review any objections.
