Verification of Amendments to Schedules

Amendments to Schedules Must Be Verified By the Debtor(s)

(Posted 11/21/2008)

The judges in this district require that amendments to all petitions, lists, schedules, and statements include an unsworn declaration signed by the debtor(s), pursuant to Bankruptcy Rule 1008.

You may use either the last page of Official Form 6 - Declaration Concerning Debtor's Schedules, or you may include the following statement at the bottom of the amendment:

"I have read the foregoing amendment consisting of ( ) pages and certify under penalty of perjury that it is true and correct to the best of my knowledge, information and belief."

                                                                                     Signature ______________________

                                                                                                             Joint Debtor (if any)

The debtor's signature (if a joint case, both spouse's signatures) must be included on the unsworn declaration.

Pursuant to the Third General Order Authorizing Electronic Case Filing , documents requiring the signatures of non-Filing Users are to be filed electronically with the signature represented by a "/s/" and the name typed in the space where a signature would otherwise appear, or as a scanned image. Documents that are electronically filed and require original signatures other than that of the Filing User must be maintained in paper form by the Filing User until all time periods for appeals expire. On request of the court, the Filing User must provide original documents for review.
