Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'm glad to assist. If you file Chapter 7, there is no automatic right to voluntary dismissal it. Generally, you can only dismiss your Chapter 7 bankruptcy if you have a good cause OR if the trustee and your creditors do not object.
Expert:  Roger replied 1 year ago.
USUALLY, this can be done but you would have to file a motion with the court, notice the trustee and all creditors so they would have an opportunity to object.
Expert:  Roger replied 1 year ago.
If there is no objection, the court will grant the dismissal. Converting to a chapter 13 is not very difficult SO LONG AS you can prove you have the cashflow to sustain a plan.
Expert:  Roger replied 1 year ago.
But, if you want to try to keep your property, it is probably better to convert to a 13.
