The bankruptcy schedules outline all the debts of the debtor including: medical bills, mortgages, car loans, student loans, credit card debt and taxes. The creditor's name, contact information, account numbers and the total amount of all the debts is also listed on the schedules. Bankruptcy lawyers can be contacted to review and help prepare accurate bankruptcy schedules. Bankruptcy discharges will only include the debtors which are listed on the bankruptcy schedules. The debtor has a legal obligation to ensure the schedules are accurate and will have to provide a signed document to that effect. If a debtor does not know all of their debt and creditors at the time of the filing, under limited circumstances, the Bankruptcy Court may allow the debtor to amend their bankruptcy schedule to include debt that was incurred prior to filing bankruptcy but not known. Bankruptcy attorneys can provide more information for the specific details for amending a schedule.

Another type of schedule is Schedule C which outlines all of the debtor's property and the state or federal exemptions which may protect the assets from the bankruptcy process. Certain types of property are considered exempt and can not be liquidated to repay debt owed to creditors. Contact a bankruptcy lawyer who is familiar with the exemptions allowed in your state to help complete Schedule C.
