You could convert to a Chapter 7. I don't know if this would allow you to accomplish your goals, but it would definitely end your case in short order.The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which governs bankruptcy cases in Oregon, has determined that a debtor has an absolute right to convert to Chapter 7. In re DeFrantz (9th Cir. BAP 2011) 454 BR 108, 113–115. However, this could lead to a dismissal if you fail the "means test" due to too much income. You would need to talk to your bankruptcy lawyer about this issue to see if you can satisfy or rebut the means test.Hope this helps.
