Depending on where you are, typically a motion to convert or a notice of conversion will work. You need to be extremely careful about conversions, though, because of the effect on any secured creditors, priority creditors, and assets. I strongly recommend hiring an attorney to assist with this. The Court charges a fee of $25 for the conversion last I checked.
