I Want to Convert My Chapter 13 Bankruptcy to a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. – Tiwanna

I’m current on my chapter 13 payments but want to convert to a 7 and pick up my car payments again. The car is the only reason I filed anyway. I helped someone get a car and they didn’t keep up with the payments. But I had other unsecured debt that was suppose to be discharged when I first filed the 13. My total pay back amount was about $22,000 and now I owe about $12,000.

Can I convert to a chapter 7 but still pick the payments back up on this vehicle.
