You can have your Chapter 7 claim dismissed as long as the dismissal will not harm your creditors. This is filed with the court in much the same way as when you initially filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy
It is dismissed when the terms of the bankruptcy have not been met. Creditors are no longer barred from seeking repayment. A complete one is called confirmed, in a dismissal everything returns to the way it was before filing.
When any bankruptcy action is dismissed for any reason the debtor(s) lose(s) bankruptcy protection. This means creditors may pursue collection of the debt, including, in most situations filing a lawsuit. A chapter 13 bankruptcy dismissal will remain on the debtor's credit report for 7 years.
Discharge indicates that the Chapter 13 terms have been fulfilled as agreed. Dismissal means the bankruptcy was dismissed because the terms were not being met or other factors. When a BK is dismissed the debtor is no longer under the protection of BK law and creditors can resume debt collection proceedings such as lawsuits, garnishments, and so forth.
You wont get any money back, garnishment should stop the next pay period after dismissal.
You can't. A valid entry for a dismissed chapter 13 bankruptcy will remain on a credit report for seven years from the date of dismissal.
No, once a bankruptcy is dismissed it has to be refiled after the time limit has expired. The time limit to refile after a chapter 13 dismissal is two years.
Yes. I tried to remove a dismissed bankruptcy from my credit report. All agencys were contacted and so was the FTC. They said they had a legal right to keep the Bankruptcy dismissal information on the bureaus files.
Creditors holding secured claims cannot be dismissed in a bankruptcy. These claims will have to be reaffirmed or they can take back the property.
If your Chapter 13 was dismissed, meaning you did not complete your Plan, then you are essentially right back where you started before you filed for bankruptcy. The creditors can pursue you for the debts without any legal ramifications.
No, it will remain for seven years.
A dismissed bankruptcy cannot be discharged. Once a BK is dismissed it is no longer valid and creditors may resume collection action and/or repossession of property. The petitioner of the dismissed BK must wait the required amount of time before filing a new bankruptcy petition.
The entry on the credit report is not incorrect, a dismissed bankruptcy remains on the CR for seven years from the date of the dismissal. Valid information cannot be expunged from a credit report until the required time limit has expired.
The dismissal should be entered and the case dismissed within a few days of the time that you or your attorney submit it for filing with the bankruptcy court.
You no longer have the protection of the Court or the BK laws, and creditors may oursue collection every legal way.
Only holders of undischarged debt can come after assets or income after a discharged bankruptcy. Some debts may not be dischargeable in a bankruptcy, such as tax debt. The meaning of dismissed is different from discharged, however. A dismissed bankruptcy would be one that did not conclude. In that case, creditors may attempt any legal means to recover what is owed.
Presuming it was a voluntary filing, that your creditors didn't force you into it involuntarialry...you can ask and file with the court for dismissal. The protection BK affords is then ceased and the creditors can pursue actions to collect the debt.

The same thing that happens when a Chapter 13 is dismissed in any other state. It is as if the bankruptcy was never filed. The automatic stay is lifted and the trustee returns any money left on hand to you.
You can file again after 180 days. If the dismissal with prejudice was for fraud or perjury or similar reasons, you may be able to file a new bankruptcy, but you may not be able to discharge any debt included in this one dismissed with prejudice. Consult an experienced local bankruptcy lawyer.
You will need to file a new Chapter 13 bankruptcy, propose a new Chapter 13 repayment palnt and demonstrated to the Court's satisfaction that you have the ability to pay the plan payments.
You can't get it removed. It is a public record. If you file a bankruptcy and get it voluntarily dismissed the next day, it will still be on your credit report. Also, by the way, not paying into a Chapter 13 plan is not a voluntary dismissal. The Trustee moved to have the bankruptcy dismissed. - The easier approach would have been to actually voluntarily have it dismissed. Regarding Nate's posting, I agree that non-payment of a Chapter 13 normally results in the trustee moving to dismiss your case, which is an involuntary dismissal. I have no idea if whether a Chapter 13 is voluntarily or involuntarily dismissed affects your credit rating differently (probably not, credit reporting agencies barely seem to recognize the difference between Chapter 7's and Chapter 13's, much less the way in which any particular case is dismissed), but there can be a big difference to the debtor whether a case is involuntarily or voluntarily dismissed if a creditor has moved to get property back. Once a creditor asks the court for permission to get back some property (such as a car or home), which they do by filing a Motion for Relief from Stay, then if you voluntarily dismiss your case you are barred from re-filing a new Chapter 13 for 180 days. This 180 days may be enough time for the creditor to foreclose/repo and sell the property. Once a creditor moves to repo/foreclose in a Chapter 13, many people prefer to be involuntarily dismissed so they can re-file a new Chapter 13 immediately and get protection again before the creditor sells the collateral. Please keep in mind this is not legal advice but simply a statement of what many people do in that situation from my perspective. So, while Nate (in the posting above) said it is easier to voluntarily dismiss, that does not mean it is always better to voluntarily dismiss, depending on the circumstances.
