I agree with my colleague. I'd just suggest printing out a fresh copy of the one page you made a mistake on.
This comment is not intended as legal advice. It does not create an attorney client relationship and is not confidential. If you need help, you should contact an attorney who can review all the facts of your case and give you specific legal advice catered to your needs.
You can correct a document that you haven't submitted to the court yet if you made a mistake. It would be better just to reprint the page that you need to fix with the corrections then using whiteout. The court scans all the documents they get these days and sometimes a scanned copy will show the markings under the white out. I would just do the page over.
