Yes, but there's a fee. Its kind of like filing an amendment to your taxes. However, if you went crazy with charges in between the time that you filed and the time that you're adding on the new cards, the court will either reject your request or the vendors will demand their items back.

For example, if you filed bankruptcy and then went out and charged a flat screen tv on your Visa, and then tried to add that to the bankruptcy, NO ONE is going to let that one slide!
