Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You would have to file a motion to amend the financial statement and attach a corrected version of the financial statement to your motion. In the motion you would explain to the court that there were errors in the financial statement submitted and had you seen those errors you would not have signed the statement and it was either altered after you signed or there was some human error. Attach a copy of a corrected financial statement and also say in the motion that your ex is the attorney who negotiated the settlement on the investment account and should also know the correct amounts.
The court will not punish you over any mistake and if you can prove it was altered by your ex after you signed, they can punish him for doing so.
Thank you for your reply.
You have to file a motion and explain why there was an error and ask the court to amend the form. Yes, he could move to reopen as well, since the error could change the property distribution. You need to show in your motion with your documents in your possession how this was in error and why the error occurred (or perhaps he changed it after you submitted it).
