So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.
To file an amended petition you will need to refile the schedules that are affected adding the new creditors information. The matrix will need to be re-filed as well. Once you have the amended petition prepared, contact the clerk of the courts office to file and pay the fee
The clerk said I need to file a declaration concerning schedules with the amount of pages included to reflect the amendment, what is that?
and I also need to file certificates of service
The certificate of service and declaration are local forms. You can ask the clerk for a copy of the forms
and also a verified statement or an unsworn declaration as required by Fed. R. Bankr. P. 1008 and in accordance with 28 USC 1746
and a motion to amend schedules, is this a specific form I can download or is it just written up by me?
and do I have to send out the certificates of service to each creditor or just include it with everything I send to the bankruptcy court?
I think I would like to work with a new expert, as I feel it might be helpful to have someone more local
