Schedules A/B through J and Summary

How to file:

Location of event: Bankruptcy > Schedules/Statement of Financial Affairs/Initial Required Documents > Schedule(s) - Incomplete Filings Only

  • FRBP 1007(b), (c)

General Information

  • Bankruptcy schedules must be filed within 14 days of filing of a new Bankruptcy Petition. The Bankruptcy Case may be dismissed if these documents or a Motion for Extension of Time are not timely filed.
  • The Schedules are normally included in the same PDF as the Petition. However, if they were not included at the time of filing of the Petition, they may be filed separately using the instructions below.
  • If the Schedules are being filed along with other documents as part of the filing of the balance of an emergency petition, they may be combined with many of those documents in one PDF. View separate instructions on filing the balance of an emergency petition

Filing requirements 

  • Official Forms B 106 (individual debtors) or B 206 (non-individual debtors) must be used.
  • For non-individual cases, schedules C, I and J are not required. Instead, an Income and Expenses Statement must be filed. See sample form
  • A Summary of Your Assets and Liabilities and Certain Statistical Information form must be included.
  • A Declaration under Penalty of Perjury must be filed and signed by the debtor(s). This must be done even if a Declaration was previously included with Schedules filed earlier in the case. (The Declaration refers to "...summary and schedules filed with this declaration...," not to any schedules that might be filed at a later date. Therefore, a new Declaration is always required any time schedules or summary of schedules are filed.)
  • An "Amendments to Schedules D, E, F or list of creditors" fee is due if the schedules add creditors that were not uploaded to the case at the time of filing the Petition.
