Have French Law Questions? Ask an French Lawyer Now.
Welcome to JustAnswer!As your European Law expert, I am reviewing your question and will try to find a good answer for you.
I am very sorry for your situation. According to the JA terms of service, this is not an attorney service, just a general legal information service. We can neither recommend an attorney, nor ourselves (also, I am not based in France at the moment).
Given the urgency of your situation, I can only strongly advise taking up a local English-speaking attorney, who can go to court and deal with the issue directly with you. Here you will find the lists of English-speaking attorneys prepared by the US Embassy, by region of France: https://fr.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/local-resources-for-us-citizens-in-france/
Feel free not to rate my answer. If you do not, the question will be closed and you will not pay anything.
