What should I do if I discover that I forgot to list a creditor in the bankruptcy Schedules?
You should notify your attorney and provide him or her with all the information necessary to complete the schedule (the amount of the debt, the type and value of any collateral, and the name and address of the creditor). This is very important, because if you do not list a debt on your schedules, that debt might not be discharged. That means you will be required to pay the debt in full after bankruptcy.
If an omitted creditor demands payment of the debt, you should inform the creditor of the bankruptcy, as discussed below.
