A debtor can dismiss a Chapter 13 bankruptcy at any time without a fee, except perhaps for any remaining attorney's fees that have not been paid under the Chapter 13 plan. A debtor cannot voluntarily dismiss a Chapter 7 without filing a motion wiht the court. Even then, the debtor must be able to demonstrate that no prejudice to creditor if the Chapter 7 is dismissed. The debtor can convert the 7 to 13 (which does involve a fee) and then dismiss the Chapter 13.
