How do I get money that I am owed from my bankruptcy trustee?

I was in a repayment plan on my Chapter13. I sold my house for a significant profit. The Trustee received the proceeds of the house to pay off the bankruptcy. Now, 7 weeks later, I still have not received the remaining proceeds if my house? Where is my money?

You need to check with the trustee of your plan.  It could be possible that he or she applied the proceeds from the sale to the repayment plan.  Was that discussed with you at all?  I would not wait any longer and double check.
