  • CH 13 Late Payment

    My plan has been confirmed. Will there be an issue if the payment is three days late?

  • #2
    Shouldn't be just be sure to let your attorney know. Ours sometimes varies like that due to paydays and we let our attorney know and get the go ahead. Ido the same but not make a habit of it.

      It seems our trustee only checks the PO box once per week as it seems our payment is posted at differing dates than one would expect. I mean I can send a letter and a friend will get it the next day in the middle of nowhere, yet the trustee posts the payments a week to ten days later. So, who knows?
      I send mine in and the posted dates are all over the place, yet I have never heard a concerning letter or call from the trustee nor attorney.

        I think you normally have 30 days after the date due. Might depend on your particular trustee.

          That is a scary thought. I would not push it that far. If I am more than a week late I call my attorney. Only once thus far, thankfully.

              Remember - on average, it takes 7-10 days from the time you mail payment to the time the trustee receives it. You take a risk in paying late...especially if you have an ass for a trustee.

              Best rule of thumb is to never be late in paying your Ch. 13 - which is why we have payroll deduction. No fuss, no muss.

                    My trustee has a 3-week grace period. I was shocked to hear that, as it's sort of contrary to the whole point of learning to keep a budget and pay on time.

                      Our trustee files for a motion to dismiss after you are 2 payments behind. They do not want to be notified if you are going to be less than 1 month late.

                        I dislike payroll deduction because you are still the one responsible to make sure your payment is sent in on time however you are not the one that is sending the payment. If a payment is not sent, lost in the mail, etc. it is still on you to make sure the payment makes it in.

                          I guess there are differing views on this, but probably based on how reliable or your faith in the payroll department where you work. I work for a large company and last year I asked the trustee for the court order to make my company use the payroll deduction feature, but they never started it. I sent this paperwork through many different channels and it still did not happen. So now we just take care of it ourselves and it is no big deal.

                            In the Middle District of Florida, we can have our payment taken from our checking account by direct withdrawal. Great convenience and never late.
