    Default Re: Can Your Creditors Force You to Convert a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy to Chapter 7

    In a sense, yes. If you can't make your Chapter 13 payments, your creditors may press for conversion of your case to Chapter 7 or for dismissal of your case. If you are able and willing to convert to Chapter 7 at that time, you could pursue a conversion. That may be better for you than a dismissal of your bankruptcy case.
