You are currently my client and I already explained this to you. ALL DEBTS MUST BE INCLUDED. I thoroughly explained that all debts means all debts. Also, I explained in detail the statute of limitations is an affirmative defense to a debt after you have been sued and not something for you to arbitrarily determine that a debts is no longer valid. You hired me as counsel and I am directing you to stop seeking advice about your currently active case on open Internet forums! Stop playing internet lawyer and just listen to me, the guy you hired to represent you......or get another layer.
Please take your lawyer's advice. He is very experienced and most importantly correct.
PLEASE NOTE: Although legal information may be conveyed in my answer, the information must be considered as preliminary, general, incomplete, and not based upon a complete set of facts, unless the information requests the reader to obtain counsel. Avvo is a forum to obtain a preliminary working idea as to how to think about a problem; it is not "the answer (or solution)" to your problem. Information rendered on this forum doe not create an attorney-client relationship and, because it is published on the internet, is not confidential. If real confidential legal advice is desired, you must contact counsel directly and sign a retainer agreement. Legal advice is ONLY given in the course of a formal attorney-client relationship. Exchange of information through Avvo's Questions & Answers is never confidential, therefore, do not disclose any particulars of your case which may prejudice you in the future.

I see you like to gamble. So please come visit us in Vegas because we love to take your money! The gamble you are proposing has bad odds - if you are right, you gain nothing, and if you lose, you will pay a lot for following your gut instinct. Lose lose lose! Hope this perspective helps.
Everyone will give you the same answer because the answer is you have to list all debts just like your attorney advised. Let him explain to you how that debt will be treated in the chapter 13 case instead of questioning him.
Answers and comments provided are for general discussion only. My comments are not to be considered legal advice and they do not create an attorney-client relationship.
Mr. Laputka is, as usual, completely correct, with regard to his ENTIRE answer. Read his answer again, and take and trust his advice, now and in the future.
