Prairieville, LA asked in Bankruptcy for Louisiana

Q: In ch 13, I got a higher paying job, will the trustee take everything higher than when we filed?

I have been offered a higher paying job, however, I don't have transportation. I need to take out a loan during 13. Our lawyer says find another way to get to work. Dont tell trustee about new job. I don't think thats right, can I talk to the trustee or one of his employees, do I need to find another attorney?. I don't like living like a pauper, but I would like to have this job when the 13 is paid so I would pay higher monthly payments just so I could get a loan? What do I do?

A: No. They will evaluate your new income in light of the plan and take a percentage of the increase.
