Amendments to Schedules
Last Updated: February 6, 2014

EFFECTIVE 12/1/13. To facilitate use in determining plan feasibility in a chapter 13 case, new Schedule I (B6I) and J (B6J) now include an amended and supplemental check box for the debtor to clearly indicate when the schedule "supplements" the initial filing of the form. When filing a supplement to Schedule I and/or J, use the new event, [Schedules I & J, Supplement]

Note:  A closed case must be reopened before an amendment is filed.  

Filing Requirements:

  • Amended Schedule with signature declaration

  • If Amending Schedule A, B, D, E, F, I, or J, file an Amended Summary of Schedules

  • Matrix Supplement when adding new creditors (listing only new creditors)

  • Proof of Service (showing service of Amendment when new creditors have been added)

  • $30.00 filing fee to add/delete creditors, or change the amount/classification of a debt.
