Yes. Any property you own whether in the state where you file, or in another state or even if not in this country would be listed. If the value is worthless. When you state the value you can give the estimated value on the schedule.

We can discuss this more if you want to do so.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
