Form Modernization Overview Official Form 106H Overview: Official Form 106H, Schedule H: Your Codebtors, replaces Official Form 6H, Codebtors, in cases of individual debtors. New Form Elements: The form breaks out the questions about whether there are any codebters, and whether the debtor has lived with a spouse, former spouse, or legal equivalent in a community property state in the prior eight years. It also removes Alaska from the listed community property states. Finally, it asks the debtor to indicate where the debt is listed on Schedule D, Schedule E/F, or Schedule G, thereby eliminating the need to list the name and address of the creditor.
