In most Chapter 13 cases the debtor may have his/her case dismissed. A motion requesting dismissal should be filed with the Court only after reviewing the pertinent sections of the Bankruptcy Code as well as the consequences of dismissal.

    Yes you may but it may not be the best thing for you to do. If you have an attorney discuss the ramifications with him. If you filed pro se (by yourself) by all means consult with an attorney to review your case before taking any action.

    Yes, unless your case was converted to a Chapter 13 because of issues in your Chapter 7. The trustee might not let you dismiss the Chapter 13. If you filed the Chapter 13 first, you can voluntarily dismiss your Chapter 13 without incident.
