First you have to be eligible. Then it is just simply a motion. Most courts have a "check the box" version.

Converting your case is possible. You would want an experienced attorney to review your CH13 file online before you convert. There are a number of ramifications.

It is not hard to do as long as you are eligible. Converting to chapter 7 may leave you exposed to the HOA, unless the chapter 13 has paid their lien.

    If you qualified for a chapter 7 when you first filed, it is quite simple to convert to chapter 7 from Chapter 13.

    If you are eligible to be a Chapter 7 debtor, you can convert. It is pretty easy ? just file an ex parte motion.
