The BK trustee usually waits until two payments have been missed and then files a Motion To Dismiss. There will be a time specified (usually 30 days) in which missed payments can be made up in FULL. If the amount owed is not presented before the time expires the 13 will be dismissed without further notice. If the filing is less than 60 months the trustee might agree to meet with the party involved to discuss possible modification of the BK plan.
