A Chapter 13 requires you to pay ALL of extra money to the Trustee every month!
You are prohibited from moving, buying a new car or taking a vacation during a pending Chapter 13!

The Trustee will take all your stuff when you file Chapter 13!
Yes, these are all myths and untrue when you file Chapter 13. This week's episode came about from a consultation with a prospective client who was so scared of filing Chapter 13 because of all of the misinformation on the internet.
