Alternative addresses for debt on the bankruptcy petition.

New York, NY |

I have noticed that my lawyer listed alternative addresses for creditors as if they were separate creditors, and both of them had the same balances. Is this a correct way of doing things? Should he have listed the alternative addresses with 0 balances, or it doesn't matter? My lawyer seems young and inexperienced and I don't know if he did the right thing.

  1. This is a question you should ask your attorney and one that he should readily answer with an explanation. I do not think that this is the appropriate forum to ask other attorneys to second guess your lawyer.

  2. Not only was your attorney right but this is an example of a "best practice."
