I received a notice of intent to foreclose from my mortgage

I received a notice of intent to foreclose from my mortgage company, Carrington Mortgage Services. I am currently in arrears for the months of July and August and plan to pay one month on 8/31. I am trying to figure out what to do next. I just paid $8300 to them at the end of May after being sold to them by my previous lender, Citimortgage. Carrington demanded payment in full for the $8300 which covered November 2015 - May 2016.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And has any paperwork been filed?Customer: TX. How would I find out if any paperwork has been filed. Would this be through my county?JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: My husband and I have talked about speaking with one, but haven't done so yet. We received the letter on Friday afternoon.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Other than we would like to keep our house and can financially pay for it.

My house is at the end of foreclosure. The judge has already

My house is at the end of foreclosure. The judge has already stated he has decided to grant the Motion for Summary Judgment. He has ordered the bank's attorney to submit the "facts and conclusions of law" in 21 days or sooner. the attorney is to then mail me a copy, and 6 days later, I must have my facts and conclusions of law back to the attorney to submit both documents to judge's chambers. It is obvious that the attorney will wait out the full 21 days before he mails his copy to me. It is a weekend...I will get that copy (at the EARLIEST) 2 1/2 days before I fax my facts and ...law back to the attorney...I can't possibly do it that short amount of time. I have no clue even HOW to do this...there are 11 days left to DAY 21...my question is: Could I hire an attorney or paralegal to write me up a sample "facts and conclusions of law for my state (Illinois)...I could email or deliver by hand the pertinent documents filed in the case..??? Or must the attorney take the case, enter his appearance, etc.etc.???

I loaned 50,000 to a man that I met online. He owned a company called Help Me Buy My Auto and needed investors. I have a signed promissory contract and the money was due in December 2015. He has disappeared and the office is closed. I have since found out on the internet that he opened another company called Capital Investment the very same month the money was loaned. His wife (whom he told me he was separated from) was a officer of company and never was informed of this loan. They filed bankruptcy in Dec? And also sold a 520,000 house in Fort Myers and bought a foreclosure. I believe this man has done this before and may be doing it to others. Is there anything I can do?

12/2011 I placed my mother's PGE account in my name, she had pre-dementia and her caregiver had twice allowed the power to be cut off. In April 2014 I became POA for my mother due to full dementia. In June of 2015 my mother was place in a 24 hour care facility and in July 2015 I directed her mortage company to initiate foreclosure on her reverse mortagage. I was instructed to leave her utilities on until proceeding were finalized. In October of 2015 I discovered squatters living in her home and informed the mortagage company. In Februaruy 2016 I shut off all utilities since I was being billed for the PGE. I did not pay the PGE for October onward due to the squatters. I am now being sent to collections through PGE since my name is ***** ***** account. Does the POA from 2014 protect me? I know it did on all of her credit card accounts.
