AMENDMENTS OF VOLUNTARY PETITIONS,

LISTS, SCHEDULES AND STATEMENTS

 

(A)    Procedure

Amendments of voluntary petitions, lists, schedules and statements shall be filed consistent with guidelines outlined in the ECF User's Manual. An Amendment Cover Sheet shall accompany all amendments.

(B)     Amendments Adding a Creditor

A debtor shall file and serve amendments adding omitted creditors to schedules, matrices and statements with a notice that shall include:

(1)           the name and address of the trustee and debtor's counsel;

(2)     (a)     the bar date for filing proofs of claim. If the bar date has passed or will pass within 30 days and a creditor without knowledge of the bankruptcy is added, the notice shall provide that the creditor has 30 days after service of the notice to file a proof of claim; or

(b)     a statement clarifying that no date has been set or that it is a no-asset case and proofs of claim need not be filed; and

(3)    the deadline to file complaints seeking denial of discharge.  If the deadline has passed or will pass within 30 days and a creditor without knowledge of the bankruptcy is added, the notice shall provide that the creditor has 30 days after service of the notice to file a complaint.

A debtor shall also serve omitted creditors with the Notice of Meeting of Creditors and Deadlines. Do not include this notice with any filing you make with the court.

(C)    Amendments Reducing the Amount of the Claim or Reclassifying the Claim

If a debtor amends schedules to reduce the amount of a claim or to reclassify a claim as contingent, unliquidated or disputed after the notice of the claims bar date was served, the debtor shall serve the amended schedules and a notice of the claims bar date upon the affected creditor. The debtor shall also provide written notice that the affected creditor must file any proof of claim by the bar date or 30 days after the date of the notice, whichever is later.
