Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Every bank has their own limits for how long they will give someone to pay before they foreclose. If notice was posted in the paper and you already received notice from their attorney, you need to call the attorney immediately to try to make some agreement, because you do not have months as the bank is telling you.
AS a senior and also as having your disabled spouse you can get low cost or free legal assistance by contacting the MA Bar Association or Boston Bar Association about their pro bono legal program and they will assist matching you up with a consumer protection attorney to represent you to and negotiate a resolution over these payments.
