This answer was rated:

I am filing my own bankruptcy chapter 7 already had 341 meeting need to amend and add some creditors to my schedule F. I have added a new page and indicated AMENDED on a new set of schedule, and renumbered the pages is that all I need to do? I also re-totaled the last page to include the additional debt.

Terry L. :

Hi and thank you for your question. In the future, you can request me to answer any further questions.

Terry L. :

Yes, file a amended F listing all of the new debts.

Terry L. :

The court will charge $26 to amend.

Terry L. :

You should send notice of filing (copy of the schedule and the bankruptcy notice to each creditor you are adding on as well.

Terry L. :

That is all you have to do.

Terry L. :

Thanks for your question, good luck.
