Dismissal of Bankruptcy Before Discharge

When in active Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you must complete the plan base by making timely payments to the Chapter 13 Trustee for the term of your bankruptcy. If you fail to maintain timely payments to the Chapter 13 Trustee then your case may be in jeopardy of dismissal.

If your case is dismissed prior to discharge then immediate action is required to bring bankruptcy to active status again. The U.S. Bankruptcy court will close a case 10 days after dismissal if no motions are filed to request reinstatement. More fees will be incurred if you wish to reopen a case to reinstate. Discharge Order is the reward for successfully completing your Chapter 13 bankruptcy plan.

If case can’t be reinstated due to trustee arrears then you can discuss refiling of new Chapter 13 case with attorney.
