§ 140.6 — Bankruptcy Rule 1017: Procedure for Conversion or Dismissal

Revised: September 28, 2009


Voluntary conversion by the debtor to ChapterĀ 7 is accomplished without a court order on the filing of a notice of conversion. The debtor can voluntarily dismiss a ChapterĀ 13 case on motion without a hearing if the case was not previously converted to ChapterĀ 13. Conversion or dismissal on the request of any other party is motion practice under Bankruptcy Rule 1017(f)(1).
