Generally, if you forgot to put items in a Chapter 13 case or a Chapter 7 ASSET case, then you are stuck if you fail to add those creditors before the case closes. If you forgot to put items in a Chapter 7 NO ASSET case, then you can usually file a Motion to Reopen the case (for which the court charges a $260 fee as of 5/12/07) and then you file an Amended Schedule F (or D or E as is applicable) and add the creditor (for which the court charges a fee of $26 as of 5/12/07). You also have to pay attorneys fees for the attorney who does this for you. To add a debt to an old bankruptcy case, the debt must have been incurred before the case was originally filed unless it was a Chapter 13 converted to Chapter 7, in which case the debt must have been incurred before the case was converted to Chapter 7. Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts and law, which I do not warrant, and I am not suggesting any course of action or inaction to any person. Speak to a lawyer for specific advice. If you have any questions, please refer to a lawyer in your jurisdiction. Thanks! tooo bad tooo bad
