I am going to lose my means of supporting myself and my 2 minor children. I may possibly lose our home that was my mother's and we are living in. If they take the IRA of which I receive a monthly check I will have no way to support us. Can that be exempt from the proceedings?Are there not a cetain amount of exemptions that are allowed for myself and for my 2 children? I've spoken with a lawyer who is trying to save the my mother's home based on the equity I personally have in it. But, my fear is they won't be able to and I will have to find a place to live with no money to do so.
