Do I have to stay in chapter 13?

Federal Bankruptcy law allows you to request that your chapter 13 bankruptcy case be dismissed at any time. No one can force you to remain under a chapter 13 plan if you do not wish to remain. If you desire to stop your case, contact our office immediately. In many cases, converting to a chapter 7 bankruptcy case may benefit you rather than an outright dismissal of your chapter 13 case. You should understand that a voluntary dismissal of your case will reactivate all unpaid or disputed debts, all interest, finance charges, late charges and all claims of your creditors on their terms.
