I have been in Chapter 13 bankruptcy for over 2 years. I need out. I have seriously fallen behind on payments. We have had medical problems and my husband was hospitalized. He lost his job because he could not work. We do not know what to do.

As a debtor in a Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you have the absolute right to request dismissal of your case. You also have the right to move to convert your case to a Chapter 13. Your next move is simple: talk to a Certified Specialist in Bankruptcy Law. If you already have a great bankruptcy attorney, talk to him or her about your situation. If you need bankruptcy counsel, call me.

Yes, just file a Motion to Dismiss your case. Sometimes the court will require it to be converted to chapter 7 instead, but that's usually only if there are significant reasons to do so.

    You can get out of a Chapter 13, but if you have added expenses that are causing problems, you may be able to create a modified plan for the remaining term of your case.
