A term that refers to several kinds of forms filed by the debtor with the bankruptcy petition (or filed very shortly thereafter). These forms include various lists of assets (separated by type of assets), lists of debts (again separated by type, such as “secured”, “priority” and “unsecured”), a list of “exemption claims” made by the debtor, a statement with information about the debtor’s recent financial transactions (like property transfers), an income and expense statement (like a budget) and a mailing list for all creditors and interested parties that are entitled to notice in your case.

Of course, there are “official forms” for these Bankruptcy Schedules that must be used and some Local Bankruptcy Rules about these issues also.
