Good morning. Upon the award of a final judgment a creditor can ask the court to order the judgment debtor to complete a Fact Information Sheet and return it to the creditor, with related documents, within 45 days. The debtor must sign the Fact Information Sheet under oath, and intentional misstatements or omissions may be subject to perjury. The Rule requires the debtor to supply with the Fact Information Sheet financial documents including tax returns, deeds, and car titles. The purpose of this is to find out what you assets are and if you truly can not afford to pay the debt or just failing to do this. The party is likely going to try to garnish any income or accounts, to satisfy the judgment. Even though your boyfriend is on title to the home, it still needs to be named since it is an asset. Moreover, this is pubic information and is recorded, so it is not as though they would not be able to see this. I understand you do not want to involve him but having a shared/joint account or ownership interest does not mean you do not need to list it.
