MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA
TAMPA & FORT MYERS DIVISIONS
All mortgage creditors, must be paid through the plan as part of the plan payment to the Chapter 13 Trustee.
The only exception will be if a Debtor is not attempting to modify the mortgage, and the Debtor is current. If the court allows the Debtor to make direct payments, the stay will be lifted as to that property and creditor, and that property will no longer have any bankruptcy court protection. This policy is at the direction of all the Judges of the United States Bankruptcy Court Middle District of Florida.
