Law Office of D.L. Drain, P.A. | Diane L. Drain
The following applies in Arizona. In a chapter 7 once you filed the bankruptcy you do not get out without a court order. In a chapter 13 just file a notice of dismissal of case. Normally, the court will follow through. There are very rare occasions when a chapter 13 will not be dismissed due to bad faith.

If you have filed for bankruptcy and the case is still active, you need to file a motion to dismiss the bankruptcy. However, this can be difficult to do, particularly if you filed for a chapter 7 bankruptcy. You should probably consult a bankruptcy attorney to see if it is possible to dismiss your bankruptcy case.

There is no fee for the initial consultation. It seems you need professional assistance to either save what you have already started or dismiss it appropriately and possibly refile.

A Fresh Start | Dorothy G Bunce
If it is a Chapter 7 case, you can't! You must ask the Court for permission to dismiss the Bankruptcy and it is unlikely that the Court will grant this motion. All requests to the Court must be made in writing, and whether or not there is a local form, you must have the pleading prepared, with a notice of the hearing, a court date scheduled, and a proposed order. It is a lot easier to dismiss a Chapter 13 because although you do need Court permission, the Court will grant your motion without a hearing & without needing any explanation.

You will need to file a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal." This may be a very bad idea. It could cost you a lot of assets and time off work, if you are wrong. The time has come to go see an attorney, explain the facts and get some solid advice. You may not be allowed to dismiss. And you may be trying to dismiss for a wrong reason. Please, get some advice soon. You are not playing checkers..
