If I add the past due amount of accounts such as my cell phone

This answer was rated:

If I add the past due amount of accounts such as my cell phone bill and cable tv, to my ch7 bankruptcy, will I still b able to keep my service with them? Will it wipe out account balances and start from scratch?
Over 34 years, I have assisted my clients with debt problems having filed more than 32000 Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy petitions. Under the BK rules, all of your debts should be listed and that includes any amounts that are past due such as cable and cell. Likewise, by listing them, though the balance will be wiped out, the service provider may by law require that you post a deposit so that service can be continued.
