The greatest benefit of converting a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy to Chapter 7 is the opportunity to get rid of the obligation to make a monthly Chapter 13 Plan Payment. Another often overlooked benefit of converting to Chapter 7 is that you now have the opportunity to include post-petition debts that you incurred after you filed the original Chapter 13 Bankruptcy.  By converting your Chapter 13 Case to Chapter 7, you can discharge these obligations because under the Bankruptcy Code, the debt is treated as occurring prior to your bankruptcy filing.
