Hello 49studebaker. I am so very sorry to hear that you are being treated this way by family. There are a number of legal avenues to take. But I'm afraid to say there is so much complexity here, you will absolutely need to hire a lawyer rather than do it yourself.On the positive side, given you serious financial difficulties, you should be able to qualify for free or reduced rate legal services. If you tell where you live in NY, I can recommend agencies that can help -- often without fee.I look forward to your reply.Sincerely,Attorney Wayne.
I currently live in colorado with my brother, she lives in ny in our house which is going into foreclosure
