Consumer Bankruptcy:

Paying Early

In most cases, if your plan covers all of your debts, then you can complete the plan early. However, if you did not file a plan to cover all of your debts(for example, a Chapter 13 plan that only covered the required debts), then whatever new income is enabling you to pay off your plan must be included in your bankruptcy estate and will lead the bankruptcy Trustee to change your plan, taking these new resources into account. Consequently, before deciding to complete a bankruptcy plan early, you should consulate with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to see if this decision makes sense in your particular circumstances.
