COVID-19 FRAUD ALERT
Perpetrators of COVID-19 and related fraud schemes may attempt to inform you that the trustee has changed their policy due to the pandemic and may direct you to make plan payments to the trustee using links provided by the perpetrator to consumer payment platforms such as Venmo and PayPal.
The only electronic payment system for active Chapter 13 debtors is through TFS Bill Pay. Click on the TFS Information link below to learn more about TFS Bill Pay or view our other payment options found under the Payment Tab.
Remember, the trustee will never call you or send you an email or letter that requires that you provide us with any personal or banking information. Should you receive any communication or telephone call requesting such information concerning your bankruptcy case, please notify your attorney and the trustee. Fraudulent communications will be referred to the Department of Justice for further investigation.
If you wish to make electronic payments to the Trustee, please register with TFS Bill Pay found under the Payment Tab on our website.

INCLEMENT WEATHER UPDATES
Unless otherwise communicated, the Trustee Office will follow the guidance of the Dallas Independent School District when determining to close or delay opening of the office during inclement weather.
In the event of inclement weather during a DISD holiday, we will follow the Bankruptcy Court’s decision to open or delay. The Court’s information hotline is 214-753-2766.
In the rare situation in which DISD and the Court have a previously scheduled closing (not weather related), the Trustee Office’s closure or delayed opening will be posted via this website and/or by recorded message on the main number 214-855-9200.
