My attorney has misrepresented me in court on the June 26, 2018. My attorney has agreed to a payment amount on my Chapter 13 that I can not make, I have sent him a number of e mails, prior to the court date, telling him about the payment amount I can make and he has ignored the communication.
I am researching alternatives
I have an income tax debit that I would like to remove from the Chapter 13, This chapter 13 was approved and completed on June 26, 2018.
I think you probably mean your plan was confirmed. Your tax debt may not be removed from the plan.
Your lawyer probably accepted the amount that was necessary to allow your plan to be confirmed. But your lawyer should not deviate from your written instructions without your express consent, except in the most dire of circumstances.
If your instructions were unreasonable, and not legally sustainable, the case might have been dismissed then and there unless the lawyer agreed to the trustee's terms to keep your case alive. A dismissal could be catastrophic if you had filed to stay a foreclosure sale, so violating your instructions may have been a necessity to protect you from a greater harm.
I suggest you meet with the lawyer and talk about making an immediate motion to modify the plan, and just generally talk it over.
