Unfortunately, while Johnna is free to file a Motion to Dismiss the Chapter 13 and it will be granted, the fact that a bankruptcy was filed will remain on the credit report for up to 10 years. It does not matter if the case was dismissed or eventually discharged.Johnna - Here's my thoughts: Since you are concerned with the credit report and effects of BK, I would consider a Motion to Withdraw your BK13 case. . . You really don't need BK13 on your record . .
