After serving 27 years as Chapter 13 Trustee, Kristin Hurst has decided to retire. Our office will miss Ms. Hurst’s wisdom and experience, and we wish her the best on a well-deserved retirement. The United States Trustee has appointed Jonathan W. DeLoach to replace Ms. Hurst as trustee.
This change will not affect the administration of your Chapter 13 plan. Our payment address and contact information will remain the same.
If you mail payments to our lockbox, DO NOT USE EXPRESS OR OVERNIGHT MAIL. These delivery methods will cause delays in the processing of your payment, and may result in the mail being returned to you, undelivered. If you are under a payment deadline, you should contact your attorney for assistance.
If you are making payments by money order or cashier’s check, we strongly recommend that you take advantage of our ePay online payment program. No matter what method of payment is used, you should always keep your receipts.
You should also verify each month that all payments sent by you, or your employer, have been correctly posted to your case. You may do this by visiting the National Data Center. Due to potential mistakes inherent in the handling of mailed payments, this is the only way to be sure that your payments have been properly applied to your case each month.
If your case shows that it is confirmed on our system, you may be able to make your payment using our ePay Online Payment Program.Find out more
