Once you file for Chapter 13 protection, the Bankruptcy Court will issue an order requiring that you make the payments to the Chapter 13 Trustee which you proposed in your Plan. The Court will also set a date for you Section 341 meeting of creditors and for hearing on confirmation [approval] of your Plan. Sometimes the 341 meeting and confirmation hearing are combined into one hearing. Once your Plan is confirmed, you will be required to make the payments which you proposed to the Chapter 13 Trustee and, if appropriate, keep you home mortgage [or your rent] from getting any further behind. Once you have completed all of your payments, the Court will issue a discharge to you which will relieve you from any further obligation on the debts which were covered by your Plan.
