Dear Customer,

Thank you for using our forum. My name is ***** ***** I hope to assist you today.

No, there is no need to revise your schedules for a Chapter 7 (the court is concerned with what your income/assets were at the beginning of the case (time of filing), but assuming you "passed" the means test and were able to file a Chapt. 7 instead of a Chapt. 13, there is no need to revise your schedules to reflect your lowered income.

(I am very sorry to learn about your job loss, and I hope you are able to find something else quickly).
