In chapter 13 bankruptcy cases, every debtor has a plan that must be followed. A typical plan requires monthly payments to the trustee who then pays the creditors, the debtor has to have auto insurance, pay taxes on time, not borrow any money, etc. If the debtor doesn't meet one or more of the requirements of the plan, that's called a deviation. The plan can be dismissed and the debtor doesn't get a discharge.

Deviate means to differ. If you deviate from the plan, you are not fully complying with the requirements of the plan. To deviate may meant that the plan payment is delinquent, that tax returns are not provided to the trustee on time, or that tax refunds are not turned over to the trustee.

    Your best bet is to contact the person who wrote those words and ask him or her. Apparently it means to vary in some way from the confirmed plan which is generally a Bad Thing. You'd be wise to retain an experienced bankruptcy lawyer in your locality. It's almost always worth the investment. In any event, contact the author of the phrase.
