Thank you for your information. I am happy to assist you.
An attorney would be helpful in court. Penalties for a misstatement on your bankruptcy pleadings can be severe. They include civil and criminal penalties and a loss of potential discharge. The court will point out that it is your responsibility to read the documents before you sign them. You will need to show the court mitigating circumstances indicating that the error was not willful.
If you cannot retain an attorney, you will need to show the court that this misstatement was due to your attorney's error and not willful perjury on your part. To do this, you can consider asking your attorney to give you a written statement to this effect. If she refuses, you will need to consider bringing into court the recording on the answering machine and your original worksheet.
I hope that the information which I provided was helpful to you.
Best wishes for a successful outcome. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to submit them to me directly.
