My HOA says that I am in violation of my deed restriction for having a political sign in my yard. I believe that they are in violation of my first amendment. Need help thanks.

My child custody attorney is getting too expensive. We have not gone to trail and I don't think I will be able to pay what she is asking for. I am aware that there are attoneys that will help low income parents for free.
