Asked by Sharon, Louisville, KY Fri Jan 30, 2009

would like to just give it back to the bank. My credit is already in the dumps, I can barely afford to pay monthly bills or food. I just need a fresh start so I can afford to live in today's economy.

The point of a Chapter 13 is that you are on a payment plan to repay all your debt. No one files bankruptcy who has excellent credit and the entire point of bankruptcy is to be provided a "fresh start".
Did you file pro se or did you use an attorney? A good bankruptcy attorney should have reviewed ALL your debts and assets and advised you as to the pros and cons of Chapter 13 vs Chapter 7. Even Chapter 7 does not eliminate all debt.
I see that you are in Kentucky. I recommend if you haven't already, to visit the site I've linked below which is to the National Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney's (NACBA) website. All members are advocates for you. There is a great deal of information provided there as well as a list of attorneys in your area who are bankruptcy practitioners.
Best wishes,
