I am divorced. I own a business. In my most recent Financial Affidavit filed for a Contempt hearing, I mistakenly put my business' gross income as my gross income. This amount is what the Court used to find me in contempt. Do I have any remedy in fixing this or filing another Financial Affidavit without looking like I'm "manipulating" income?

Of course you have the right to file an amended financial affidavit and probably should do so with a footnote explaining the error. As far as how the court will look at that, I cannot tell without knowing more but you should not proceed with a mistaken financial affidavit.
