It appears that your wife filed what is called a skeleton petition
If all documents are not filed within 14 days of filing the skeleton petition the case will be dismissed
Have I answered your question?
if we file all the documents required and later decide not to go through can we have it dismissed
A chapter 7 debtor does not have an absolute right to dismiss. However if your wife filed a chapter 13, she would have the absolute right to dismiss
The paperwork is confusing but if we sent as much as we new how to complete would they ask for more and give time to complete or would they dismiss ...and if dismissed can we refile with all the information a few weeks later
The case can be dismissed if all schedules are not properly filed. Whether you can refile with depend upon the specifics of the dismissal. I suggest that you retain local counsel to assist you in preparing the schedules. Here is a link to a free site that may assist you in locating competent legal counsel: www.Martindale.com
