Chapter 13 Trustee Must Pay Debtor’s Attorney’s Fees before Refunding Money to Debtor in Chapter 13 Cases Dismissed Pre-Confirmation

Chapter 13 Trustee Must Pay Debtor’s Attorney’s Fees before Refunding Money to Debtor in Chapter 13 Cases Dismissed Pre-Confirmation

 The Debtor argues in the Motion that if this case is dismissed before the attorney fees of the Debtor’s attorney are allowed and paid by the Trustee, the Trustee thereafter cannot pay the allowed attorney fees, but instead must pay all the funds on hand back to the Debtor. For this proposition, the Debtor cites Harris v.Viegelahn, 135 S. Ct. 1829 (2015).
