As a Judge, I believe in the honor system. I will ask the player to do their best to remember the character's assets and work with what they give me from there. Then assuming things work out, I will trust that when they get back home, they'll dig out their documents and reconcile any discrepancies. I really can't afford to worry about whether a player will cheat on this step. It's on them... not me.
It's not a question of cheating, Drahliana. Here's an example:
I haven't played my cleric is over two-and-a-half years, because there's a module I want to play him through, and there hasn't been the opportunity to play that adventure.
Now, I walk into a local game store and find out that the PFS organizer is going to be running that adventure this afternoon. I can't get back home to get my PC, but they have a slot at the table.
The pre-gen dies.
How much gold is on my PC's sheet?
Here's a question: I have a boon that makes returning from the dead much cheaper, but it's only good on a low-level character. Right now, the character to which it's assigned is 3rd-level, and the boon would apply. If that PC dies, it's pretty cheap to bring her back.
So, I'm playing a 7th-level pre-gen and planning to assign the Chronicle to that 3rd-level PC. The pre-gen dies, as pre-gens are wont to do in this discussion.
Can I use the boon?
