Schedules contain financial details that may have to be changed or amended from time to time, for example, if a creditor was left off of the original document. For additional information, refer to Local Rule B-1009-1.
Curing a Deficiency
- Amended schedules filed with the Court replace all previously filed schedules; therefore, any amendment should also include BOTH the amended and the non-amended information from the original schedule previously filed.
- A $30.00 filing fee is required when making amendments to Schedules D, E, and/or F, and when adding parties to Schedules G and/or H, except:
- when adding an attorney who represents an existing creditor;
- when changing the address of an existing creditor; or
- when filing an amended schedule in response to a Notice of Deficient Filing and the fee has already been paid.
- Required in addition to the amended schedule:
- Form B6 (Declaration Concerning Debtor's Schedules) signed by the debtor(s)
- Revised listing of Creditors
- Amended Summary of Schedules if dollar amounts change
- Certificate of Service
- The Notice of Meeting of Creditors with full social security numbers and any other documents that have already been sent out to all creditors, including the most recent Chapter 13 Plan, Notice of Confirmation Hearing, etc. These documents must be served on new parties or creditors as appropriate.
- If the added creditors have already received copies of these documents, a Statement in Lieu of Notice to Added Creditors should be filed.
- The Statement in Lieu, or Certificate of Service, may be filed with the amended schedules, or as seperate events.
- If the amended schedules are deficient and the previous filing did not require the $30.00 filing fee, the amended schedule(s) must be refiled prior to the deficiency deadline or the original filing may be stricken by the Court.
- If the amended schedules are deficient and the $30.00 filing fee was previously paid, a corrected amended schedule, must be filed prior to the deficiency deadline or the original filing may be stricken by the Court.
- If the debtor’s Declaration under Perjury is deficient, a corrected Declaration must be filed prior to the deficiency deadline or the original filing may be stricken by the Court.
