In Chapter 13, Don’t Bounce Your Checks!
Please don’t bounce your checks, when paying the Chapter 13 Trustee.
At least here in Northern Virginia, after two bounced checks, they require you to start sending money orders. Money orders are expensive, hard to get during the pandemic, and even harder to trace if they are lost in the mail.
It’s better to be a couple weeks late in your payment than to bounce checks. So please, don’t bounce your payment checks.
Do NOT bounce your check to the Chapter 13 Trustee
Reminder: Here’s the Chapter 13 Mailing Address
There’s a bank in Memphis that handles the payments for most of the bankruptcy courts in the country. (They have different PO Boxes for the different Chapter 13 trustees.)
Here’s the payment address for Thomas Gorman, the Chapter 13 Trustee in Alexandria VA.
Thomas Gorman, Trustee P.O. Box 1553 Memphis, TN 38101-1553
Be sure to put your case number on your check. Otherwise it could go into the account of another person with a similar name. And don’t bounce your checks.
