Is it anticipated that the Bankruptcy will be filed in the state the client lives in?
What you are describing is perfectly "legal". You are allowed to fill out the paperwork and send it to an attorney admitted to the federal bar in the client's state - for that attorney to go over the paperwork, present it to the client, file the case, and represent the client at the 341 meeting.
By the way, simply getting the information from the client and filling out the paperwork are not considered to be legal services. Examples of legal services would be advising the client as to what assets he or she can keep, or whether or not he or she can pass the Means Test.
You can complete all Schedules with the understanding that the attorney in her state will go over them after you complete them. You should not go over the Schedules with her.
