Todd and Julie Chrisley's oral arguments are fast approaching, and their daughter Savannah Chrisley is breaking down her thoughts leading up to the fateful moment.

On the April 16 episode of her Unlocked podcast, the 26-year-old Chrisley Knows Best alum noted that she's trying to "stay as positive as possible" but that the uncertainty of everything is not easy.

"I try to educate myself. It's just so hard knowing that it could not go in our direction," she explained. "That's a tough pill to swallow."

Todd, 55, and Julie, 51, were indicted in August 2019 for 12 counts of bank and wire fraud, tax evasion, and conspiracy, all of which they have denied. The couple was cleared of their state tax evasion charge in Georgia in October 2019 but continued to face federal charges for allegedly evading federal taxes. They were sentenced that November to a combined 19 years in prison. And despite having begun the process of appealing the case, they reported to prison in January 2023.

PEOPLE confirmed in September 2023 that Todd and Julie's prison sentences had been reduced with Todd leaving nearly two years before his original 12-year sentence was meant to conclude and Julie leaving 14 months before her seven-year sentence. Their attorneys are set to argue Todd and Julie's case before a judge in Georgia on April 19, which Savannah previously indicated brings them "one step closer to getting mom and dad home."

Savannah revealed on her podcast's April 16 episode that "if it doesn't go in our direction, we have other avenues to take."

"Once again, like, super grateful for that, that there are other avenues due to how our trial played out that we could take to get a new trial or to you know just hopefully get them out early," she added. "So when it comes to the appeal, that's kind of where we're at."

As Todd and Julie remain behind bars, they have missed celebrating several major events and holidays with their family. Last month, Savannah read the latest batch of letters from her mother on her Unlocked podcast, where Julie detailed her anguish on this very matter.

"I feel like I've experienced so many emotions in the past few months," the Chrisley matriarch, 51, began before listing the holidays she's missed with her loved ones. "I've survived Todd's birthday, Mother's Day, Gray's birthday, Chase's birthday, my anniversary and Father's Day. That's a lot of missed days that I can never get back."

"I can only pray that I don't miss anymore," she added.
