    Answered . Sorry to hear about your situation. In America you can handle legal matters without a lawyer but it is not a good idea, IMHO. Many states have programs such as the one in Florida where Florida licensed attorneys donate their time to try to help individuals save their homes. You can google to find out if your state has such a program or you could call your local or state bar associations if your state has them.

    Good luck.
