    The above answer is correct. They cannot attch the home you live in in the foreclosure case. They can however come after you for the deficiency. Many times attorneys do not pursue deficiency and in some states they can record the foreclosure sale quicker if there is no deficiency. It may alos affect bidding at the sheriff auction. You should speak to a foreclosure attorney in your area.

    A simple will should be available for a couple for $600 or less. Look for young attorneys. They generally have enough expertise for your needs and will be available for less money. Contact your local bar association.

    What you said will have to be false and also harm her in some way. For example, lying about someone's business practices to potential clients would harm thier business and therefore be actionable. Normal gossip does not usually arise to an liabilty.

    You should talk to a foreclosure/bankruptcy attorney immediately. You can call your local bar association or try a well known lawyer in your area. Even if they do not practice in that area they likely can provide you a good referral.

    An uncontested divorce is available no matter your financial situation. It will be improtant that you and your spouse have agreed upon how assets will be divided, this would also be true to debts and the bank will not stop its pursuit based upon the filing of a divorce.
