You really shoulod be directing this question to your trustee – that’s one of the things they are being paid to do (answer your questions).

That being said you can’t convert your proposal into a bankruptcy, BUT you have the right to file bankruptcy at any time and once you have missed 3 of your proposal payments the proposal will be cancelled. Unfortunately the money you’ve paid into the proposal is effectively lost – you won’t receive any credit towards the cost of filing for bankruptcy – the clock (and the bill) starts ticking again.

This happens quite regularly due to changes in circumstances (for example when a job is lost).

If for some reason you don’t want to use the same trustee to file for bankruptcy that you used to file your proposal you don’t have to. Use the links to find a trustee in your area and give them a call.
