Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
The bankruptcy trustee can legally make an investigation of your home, but the chances of that happening are about as good as having a meteorite hit your coffee table.
If you inadvertantly miss an item that has substantial value, then you can amend your petition at any time during the proceedings. However, if the court thinks you're playing "fast and loose" with the filings, then the court has the power to dismiss the entire bankruptcy, which would leave you right where you started.
So, you may want to try to be as accurate as possible with your first filing.
Hope this helps.
