Screw Up On Bankruptcy Papers By Lawyers Secterary, Need Advice?
Me and the wife just got our BK papers in the mail yesterday and we were proofing them when we noticed numerous, NUMEROUS, errors on the papers. Wrong addresses, wrong account numbers, wrong addresses for me and my wife, reporting almost 3 times the real amount of income coming into our home (I make 600 a month, she put in 1,800), nearly 1/4 of our bills not listed, those that are listed some have the wrong name attached to the bill etc...the list goes on and on. The ones that bother me the most are these: 1) For real property she put none, but she lists the 30 year old mobile home we own as 6,300 later on in the papers under our Automobiles, Mobile Home. We have a 1/2 acre of land which is worth 6,300, with a 3,600 mortage, and the trailer (because of age, etc...) is worth $0.00. When I called her and pointed out the error, she says it doesn't matter it means the same thing either way and it's not a problem. Is it? 2) I'm party to two contracts and she did not list them in the papers at all. Both of them have conditions to be met (one to my parents detailing the transfer of the deed to them once they pay off the mortate; the other is one payment to me for the upkeep of a website for my last remaining client. Shouldn't they be? 3) Me and my wife turned in our monthly expenses at $1,100 at month-- we didn't raise the numbers either, that is the real numbers, and she lowered them down to just $100 over our monthly income. Should she be doing this? She doesn't think the errors are major, I do. Any advice greatly appreciated. 3) I closed down my homebased business last month and went back to freelance, she has the business as still being operational.
Just to put this problem in perspective. When we were given copies of the Ch. 7 filing, I noticed that a letter in my wife's first name was missing. This could have resulted in a differentt first name for my wife. My attorney said it would have to be corrected, which he immediately did, and gave us corrected copies. Everything else was correct. These errors need to be corrected. If there are changes over what you put down, you should ask your attorney to put *in writing* that it is OK to handle things as your lawyer proposes.
