Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Did your husband make a mistake, or did he intentionally lie. The reason I ask is I have had clients to something similar, but they thought they were telling the truth - thinking that only wages are income.
Also, did his attorney know about this income?
Do you mean how would the trustee and/or his lawyer know whether your ex-husband knew if the distributions were income?
If it can be claimed that the attorney did know - or should have known - that your ex-husband lied at the trustee meeting, then the attorney can be disciplined and possibly dis-barred from the Bankruptcy court. That would be the extent of his liability.
I think this is what you actually wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
