If a debt is unintentionally omitted from a bankruptcy filing, there may be a need for the bankruptcy documents to be amended but only if the amount is substantial.  There are several valid reasons why a creditor or debt may be unknown but the creditor should still be notified of the bankruptcy so that the creditor can file documents with the Trustee.  The problem is if a creditor is intentionally omitted in order to mislead the other creditors, the Trustee or the court.  By misleading the aforementioned parties a bankruptcy offence is committed and the Trustee must notify the court of this. In this scenario you will have to attend the court with the Trustee in order for you to get your  discharge from the bankruptcy.
