I am glad Ms. Porter qualified her statement that a Ch7, once filed, can be dismissed. They can be but it is very rare and generally is only possible in extreme circumstances because, unlike Ch13, there is no right to dismiss a Ch7 case after filing. I have only done it once in my 10+ years of bankruptcy practice and that was when shortly after filing my client, who had a no asset case, was in a car wreck and broke her back and was incurring substantial medical bills as a result. Generally, I tell my clients that they will not be able to dismiss a Ch7 case once it is filed.
