A: Please try to stop asking and re-asking the same question over and over. You have already been told that you can file a motion to dismiss the entire case at any time.

As to whether you should wait until after the first meeting of creditors to move to dismiss is your choice to make.

FYI: In most if not all cases it does not matter because the meeting of creditors will go on-- with you or without you.

A: Six of one and half dozen of the other. Objection or motion to dismiss will both get you to the same place.
