There is no time limit proscribed by law.

Juan is correct. 20 days is not very long time given the current conditions. Many offices are working with reduced staffs. Perhaps your attorney is also running with a reduced staff. Just because the refund was sent to the trustee does not mean that he/she has received it. I can tell you that there have been many many times that the IRS has claimed to have processed a return and issued a refund and still weeks passed before the $$ was seen by human eyes. There are real issues about what portion of the refund the trustee may claim and what amount is to be refunded to you. Rely on your attorney to assist you with this. You have already paid the fee, and are entitled to service. You might tactfully press the attorney for a plan to follow up. When and how will they follow up to determine that the funds did arrive and that the trustee is proceeding with reasonable speed. Ask the attorney to get written confirmation for all steps in the process. Good luck.

Since you are represented by counsel, all your questions need to be directed to your attorney.

20 days is not a long time. Especially with current Coronavirus issues likely keeping them from their office from even getting the mail in and out. When you hit 60 days you might follow up with a phone call.
