A: I hope you have an attorney to assist you in filing for bankruptcy. If so you need to direct this and all questions about bankruptcy to your attorney. If you do not have an attorney I strongly recommend you get one before filing a case.

Schedule A/B is were all assets are disclosed in a bankruptcy petition. The fair market value of the property is what you list as the value of the property in Schedule A/B. All debts are disclosed in Schedules D, E & F. The balance of the amount owed on a house loan is disclosed in schedule D, secured debts.
