Money in account

Hi. What happens to your pay checks after you file? So if you file the day before you get paid and have no money in your account the day of filing, what happens the next day when you get paid. Do your checks get taken until you get discharged?

Re: Money in account

You had to disclose all income in your petition, so if you're within your means test nothing is going to happen. If your paycheck is larger, than it's a differrent story. 

Discharge Date: 7/24/2018
