Rule 1009-1. Amendments to Lists and Schedules

(a) DEBTOR'S IDENTIFICATION. At any time before the notice of the meeting of creditors has been transmitted, the clerk may direct the debtor to file an amendment to the petition on a form prescribed by the clerk so as to correct any clerical mistakes in the debtor's name, address, or identification number. If the debtor fails to comply, the clerk shall determine the title of the case. If an amendment to the petition is filed after the notice of the meeting of creditors has been transmitted, the clerk shall change the title of the case, including making any corrections to the debtor's name or social security number, and provide a notice of corrected case title to all creditors.

(b) FILING; SERVICE. All other amendments to petitions, exhibits, attachments, schedules, statements and lists shall be verified, contain the case caption and chapter number, and be served on the trustee and the United States Trustee. Notice of the case also shall be served on each creditor listed in any amendment to a schedule of creditors. A copy of any amended schedule A/B also shall be served on each entity that has filed a request for notice or notice of appearance under Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 2002(i) or 9010(b). A copy of any amended schedule C also shall be served on each entity listed in the matrix referred to in Local Rule 1007-2(a). A copy of any amended statement of intention also shall be served on each affected creditor. If the debtor fails to file a verification or to provide proof of service of an amended Schedule C on each entity entitled to such service under this rule, the court will issue an order providing that the debtor's amended claim of exemption will have no effect until the debtor has complied with the verification and service requirements of this Rule and filed proof of such compliance with the clerk. The clerk shall not issue a Certificate Regarding Property Claimed as Exempt until the debtor has complied with the verification and service requirements of the Rule and the applicable period for objection has expired.

(c) FORM. An amendment to a schedule A/B or C shall be labeled "Amended Schedule ___" and consist of a copy of the schedule to be amended with the changes shown thereon by underlined typewritten entries to show additions and lining out to show deletions, except an amendment solely to correct a legal description of real property which may instead conform to a form supplied by the clerk. An amendment to a schedule D or E/F shall: 1) be labeled "Supplemental Schedule D-E/F"; 2) list alphabetically the names and addresses of the added or corrected creditors; 3) state whether priority is claimed or security is held by each creditor; 4) specify all other information for each creditor which would otherwise be applicable on the previous separate schedule filed in this case; and 5) be accompanied by a supplemental matrix. Other amendments shall be made by filing a new exhibit, attachment, schedule, statement or list, be labeled as amended and bear an appropriate caption, and verification shall be attached thereto. A matrix may not be amended under this rule.
