How do you withdraw a bankruptcy?

Presuming it's a voluntary bankruptcy of course: The general consences from previous similar questions- Try asking the court clerk for the assigned judge. If a Trustee has been appointed, contact them. Don't appear for the 341 meeting. (Personally I think contacting before or at least appearing and advising the Trustee that you don't want to proceed is better.) If the BK is a chapter 12 or 13, a motion for dismissal is filed with the clerk of the bankruptcy court, all petitioners must agree to the dismissal and sign the petition. If it is a chapter 11 or 7 the motion is filed with the clerk of the bankruptcy court or the clerk of the bankruptcy appellate panel, and a hearing date is set to determine if the bankruptcy is subject to be dismissal. In the majority of cases, a conversion BK cannot be dismissed once it has been docketed. The petitioner does not need an attorney and forms can be obtained from the office of the clerk of the bankruptcy court. Needed information should always be requested from the office of the clerk of the court with jurisdiction.
