You should list debts on your bankruptcy forms that are on your credit report even if you don't think you owe them.

When you fill out your bankruptcy forms, you may wonder whether you're supposed to list debts that are on your credit report but that you don't think you owe.
The short answer is yes.
Here's a longer answer: It's a good idea to list all of the debts from your credit report that have a balance. Your credit report probably includes debts you have paid off — you do not need to include these.
You should include debts with a balance even if you don't think you owe them. Best-case scenario the debt will be discharged and you won't have to worry about it anymore. Worst case you'll be in the same position you're in now with that particular debt.
