As previously reported, Roberta DeAngelis, the attorney in the U.S. Trustees Office who evaluated the Giudice filing, recommended that the court not grant their Chapter 7 petition.

She alleged that the couple had fraudulently tried to hide assets.

"I am going to be sending a letter to the US Trustees Office because I would like to resolve with them their issue rather than have to try it," attorney Kridel told

"I'm not doing it out of desperation; I'm doing it in their debtors and US Trustees best interest. That's the next step. But ultimately the ball is in their court."

Kridel said he is going to try to convince the Trustee Office that they'd lose in a trial and that his clients "have been punished enough".

"Instead of just looking at it as 'Joe Giudice,' it is a family and to deny a discharge in this case would destroy this family. Some of the family members are clearly not responsible for anything that occurred here."
