List both addresses. List the original creditor first and in the next space list the collection agency. In the space that asks for the consideration for the debt list it as a collection account for the original creditor and indicate $0.00 for the amount due. This way both parties receive notice of the filing.

Both and make sure they are correspondence addresses. I would strongly advise that you see a local knowledgeable bankruptcy attorney. If you read over these posts, you'll notice that folks who do it themselves often have unforeseen problems and consequences.

The best practice is to put the original creditor down first & then indicate the collector as a secondary notice party to this debt.
