Even though bankruptcy laws and rules are federal and the same everywhere in the United States, each bankruptcy district has its own local rules and local forms. Upsolve’s tool meets all federal requirements but does not yet account for the more than 90 variations due to local rules.
While we work on automating that part of the process, we’ve developed a series of location specific guides to assist you in making sure the amendment process goes smoothly. Be sure to follow the instructions in this guide carefully.
The amendment packet you generated through Upsolve includes the following:
- Amendment Coversheet with Certificate of Service
- Your amended bankruptcy forms, including signature pages and, if necessary, updated Official Form 106Sum.
Here is what you need to do to make sure you meet the requirements for the Western District of Tennessee, where your case is pending:
As your district does not require a specific coversheet, you may use the coversheet provided by Upsolve.
No matter which form you’re updating, make sure to send a copy of the amendment to your case trustee.
Are you amending Schedules D, E/F, G, or H or updating a creditor’s address?
The Western District of Tennessee doesn’t have a separate notice form to send out. Just make sure to send a full copy of the amendment to the creditor(s) you’re adding or updating in addition to sending one to your case trustee.
Certificate of Service
The Western District of Tennessee doesn’t require a certificate of service for amendments.
Updating your Creditor Matrix
This is necessary if your amendment adds one or more creditors.
The Western District of Tennessee doesn’t specify whether you need to submit a full or supplemental Creditor Matrix to the court when amending this document.
You can download your full matrix as a .txt. file from your my.upsolve account. The easiest way to create a supplemental matrix is by going back to the case editor and downloading your matrix as a .txt file. From there, you can easily delete all creditors except for the newly added/updated one(s).
Verification of your Creditor Matrix
This is basically a signature page to add to your creditor matrix. The Upsolve generator will create this document for you in a format acceptable to the court in your district.

If you get conflicting information from your local bankruptcy court, follow their instructions. We do our best to keep these guides up to date, but your local bankruptcy court is the final authority on their process.
