Is there a specific question with which I could assist?
You do that by getting an itemized print out of that account from the mortgage company and then comparing it to the checks you have sent. That should show where the error occurred. They may have been applying it to the wrong account, etc.
The paperwork is how you prove your case though. You can also hire an accountant to do it if you prefer. You have to spend money then but they will likely spot things quicker than you will if you don't do accounting regularly.
Are you talking about looking up case law?
And online or one you can visit in person?
YOu can go to any law school and they will have a library and most of them will let you access their books. Some courthouses will have law libraries as well but they're usually not very good.
Google has a "hidden" section that has case law at https://scholar.google.com/
You can get a good, inexpensive ebook on how to do legal research using Google Scholar at http://www.lessonsinlaw.com/the-guerrilla-guides-to-the-law/the-guerrilla-guide-to-legal-research-finding-the-law-for-non-lawyers/
That one is very easy to understand and provides a lot of info.
