I file chapter 13 alone. Wife was not included.
« on: February 17, 2012, 07:14:01 PM »
I am recently married (2 years) and made the decision to file Chapter 13 last year. My wife was not included as she wasn't part of any of my debt. At the time my case was confirmed my wife was not working. She has since begun working and it is now tax time. We have filed our taxes jointly the past 2 years. I now understand that I have to send my trustee a copy of my federal taxes and pay him anything I get back beyond $1200.
My question is that since my wife has begun working our household will now have more income. Can the trustee amend my plan and raise the amount I have to pay even though my income hasn't changed? I am only paying 36% of my total debt.
I live in Chicago, IL
