A: Yes, if the case hasn't been discharged yet. You will need to pay the bankruptcy $31 to add the creditor, and follow the court rules to notify the creditor of the addition. The court requires to file the amended schedule and an amendment cover sheet. You need to send the creditor a copy of the amended schedule, and a copy of the notice of meeting of creditors. Mail it to the address for sending notices, not the address for payments, if those are different.
