MOTION TO DISMISS and/or CONVERT CHAPTER 11 TO 7
FILED BY DEBTOR, UST, CREDITOR OR PARTY IN INTEREST

 
Overview:
 

The court may only dismiss a case under this chapter after notice and hearing and only for cause.

Under 11 U.S.C. Section 1112(b) a party in interest may request that the case be converted to a case under chapter 7.

These matters must be set for a hearing within 30 days and the court must decide the motion not later than 15 days after the commencement of the hearing, unless the movant expressly consents to a continuance for a specific period of time or compelling circumstances prevent the court from meeting the time limits.

This filing should be accompanied by the Motion, Notice of Motion, and Proposed Order.  When required by Local Bankruptcy Rule 9013-2, a Certificate of Service must also be filed.
