A Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases can be reopened after discharge and case closure under certain circumstances. Many bankruptcy courts routinely grant debtors' motions to amend schedules to list previously omitted creditors. But reopening a closed, no-asset case to add a creditor has no effect on whether the omitted debt is discharged.
