It definitely is okay to indicate "unknown" for the amount owed on any debts for which the amount owed is not known. I have done this many times, and the debtors have never been questioned by the trustee - perhaps because it is completely understandable that the balance owed for some debts is just not known.(Not knowing the amount owed would present a problem for a Chapter 13 - where there is a limit to the amount of debt - but there is no problem for a Chapter 7 where there is no limit.) I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
