Schedule C in bankruptcy

Individuals filing for bankruptcy will be able to use a Schedule C to list properties being claimed as exempt. Some states allow usage of federal exemptions and some do not. Uncertainty of how to properly fill out a Schedule C form often lead to questions like the ones answered below.

What is a Schedule C in bankruptcy?

Schedule C in bankruptcy is a form to list property claimed as exempt. A Schedule C specifically refers to properties listed on Schedule A or Schedule B. It does not refer to any income. If there is a property that has no equity then there would be no reason to claim it on a Schedule C.

I filed Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I have now received life insurance proceeds which went directly to the bankruptcy trustee. How long will it take to receive any monies left over from the proceeds?

It should take around 90 days for you to receive anything left over after paying your creditors. It takes around a month for to notify the creditors to file proofs of claim. They are given 30 days to file the proofs of claim. Then it takes another month for the trustee to figure out how much the creditors will get. What is left over will go to you. Creditors are entitled to add interest and the trustee get 10%.

Your attorney can also file an amended Schedule C to include the life insurance proceeds. The trustee will then have to send the entire amount back to you as it would no longer be able to be used to pay your creditors.

How could someone amend a Schedule C if it was submitted incorrectly at the time of the initial bankruptcy?

You would begin by filling out the same Schedule C form that you filled out when you filed for bankruptcy. You would make the necessary changes to the form. Keep in mind that once you amend the Schedule C form the newly revised form will take the place of the previous form so you want to make sure that you fill it out entirely. Do not just fill it out with the changes. At the top of the form you will write “Amended”.

A copy of the amended Schedule C form will need to be mailed to the Bankruptcy trustee and to the United States Trustee. A copy of the form will need to be filed with the bankruptcy clerk and you will need to keep a copy.

If the total dollar amount on Schedule C is going to change then you will also need to fill out an Amended Summary of Schedules. You will follow the same amending rules as with the Schedule C. And additionally mail and file with the appropriate people.

Having the right information and understanding of a Schedule C in bankruptcy can help when dealing with questions regarding a Schedule C. Experts can help answer questions about Schedule C inclusion or how to fill out an amended Schedule C. Get the answers fast and affordably by asking an Expert online.

Recent Schedule C Questions

  • my bankruptcy petition was converted from Chapter 11 to Chapter

    my bankruptcy petition was converted from Chapter 11 to Chapter 7 because of USC 1112(b) failure to obey a stipulated order to submit a disclosure statement and plan. U.S Trustee appointed a chapter 7 trustee under USC 704. And the very next day the Chapter 7 trustee sent me a letter ordering me the former Debtor-in Possession to cease and decease from operating the day to day business and not collect one single penny. And sent a letter to al the tenants as well not to pay me a penny.
    I have just learned from a attorney from this site (thank you so much) that the Chapter 7 trustee needed to get authorization from the court in accordance to USC 704 (8) and USC 721.
    seeing that this trustee violated the law can I now file a motion to dismiss do to these violations of my right as a Debtor to Due Process and Prejudice and Privacy. I am sure if I had an attorney these letters would have never been sent.
  • I am in oklahoma and am being sued for garnishment for a past

    I am in oklahoma and am being sued for garnishment for a past bill... I have a court date set for Dec 2nd to provide paystubs, tax filings, bank statements. I will be out of the country on vacation that has been planned for over a year. I called the law office and they said they would not change it. I know that based upon my salary that they will get a judgement of the maximum OK garnishment of 25%. I was just planning on not going to the court date or providing any documents but I wanted to ask someone if I was cutting my own throat?
  • I am trying to find out whether there is any rule that limits

    I am trying to find out whether there is any rule that limits how far back they can request documents in a 2004 exam. They are asking for 10 years of documents. They are relevant to the creditor's claims, but it is going to be burdensome. That seems like my only defense. Is there a rule or statute that limits how far back they can go?
