From your question, it appears that you may have already gone to court today. If you did and the case got reset, then you need to do everything in your power to borrow money for an attorney. Ask the judge for more time to hire an attorney. You may get an attorney to at least advise you on a Limited Scope Representation where the attorney will not appear in court but can advise you prior to going back to court. Often an attorney can draft the pleadings and put your name on them. This is not the best option, but showing up without a clue is worse. Look for a new lawyer in your area and call him or her, often they can be less expensive.
