Thank you for this response. I have talked with several attorneys before filing. The decision to file pro se was not taken lightly, and actually, I was backed into a corner in doing so because I needed the automatic stay. If you can offer a solution as to *how* I can secure the attorney that you say I need badly, I would be very open to your suggestions. I've attempted to secure an attorney for two years before filing but haven't found any who are willing to take my case,. I qualify for legal aid, but this case does not.
