Can my Chapter 13 Trustee Payment be taken out of my paycheck or be set on direct debit from my checking?

Of course. Many people prefer to have their Chapter 13 payment to the trusee come out of their paycheck directly. Don't worry, its not a garnishment but is a voluntary arrangement as convenience to you.  Or, you can usually arrange to have your checking account set up as an ACH withdrawal.  This has the advantage of "set it and forget it". We can assist you in filling out the paperwork.  Keep in mind that if you are mailing out a check directly to your trustee and fall behind, an automatic payment arrangement may then be required.
