If the Court dismissed your Chapter 13 for failure to make the plan payments, it is as if you never filed for bankruptcy. However, there is one important exception. If you refile for bankruptcy within one year of the dismissal, the automatic stay will expire within 30 days unless you file a motion to extend the stay and prove to the satisfaction of the Court that the current filing is in good faith.

If you are behind with Chapter 13 payments is there anything you can do to prevent or stop a dismissal such as a payment for the past due amount?

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.

What if your daughter bought a home with her grandmother as a co-signer she now faces foreclosure should she file chapter 13 bankruptcy how does all this effect her grandmother?

If the house is headed for foreclosure, anyone on the title and the mortgage is facing foreclosure, not just one of the owners. If the daughter was responsible for the mortgage payments by agreement with her grandmother, and got behind in payments, she may be able to pull the mortgage out of foreclosure by a Chapter 13, if she can afford the plan payments and the current mortgage payments. If the Chapter 13 cannot succeed without financial input from the grandmother, it will be up to her to let it go forward and lose the house. Either way, the fact that the house is in foreclosure will affect her credit score.
