Port Orange, FL asked in Bankruptcy for Florida

Q: Can Payroll and bonus checks have the plan payment taken out?

I am a Florida resident who is 2+ yrs into a CH13 Bankruptcy. In March I noticed the plan payment was payroll deducted not only from my payroll but from my separate bonus check. This happened this past March and March of 2020. This means the trustee payment was 3,000 dollars in March (I get paid 2x per month) instead of 2,000. This will be an extra 5,000 paid to the trustee over the span of the 5 yrs and is not indicated in the payment plan amortization. Does this seem right? It doesn't to me. If I were mailing my payments in, I'd be sending the 2,000 that was court ordered, nothing more. I have emailed my attorney 3 times and she's ignoring me.
