Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hello, and thank you for contacting Just Answer.
It is certainly possible that a change or mistake in a wage assignment by a creditor could have lowered your plan payment. Or, it is possible that just removing the car debt was enough to lower the payment (I assume by "she" you mean the trustee).
Or it could be that another miscalculation was caught while recalculating the payment. My hunch would be removal of the car debt is what did it, as lowering your total debt load should lower your payment, but without being able to see the petition, schedules, and proposed plan there is no way to know with certainty. It is certainly possible that money paid through a wage assignment that had not previously been applied effected the new number by lowering it.
It would be prudent to request time from the trustee for your attorney to review the new plan, as generally they are understanding about the need to have an attorney representing a client review everything.

i got the letter from the attorney. she is the lawyer, the trustee is also a "she". my question was how can i be current when i was 1320 behind?
i also don't see why i would only pay 675 total for 3 months rather than
1400,(700 biweekly) like i was originally suppose to. then pay a different amount for the remainig 57 mo?
