I am sorry to read about your difficulties.

You need to file opposition to the Motion and tell the Court why the Motion should not be granted. You must file your response within the time stated in the Notice. Otherwise, the lender would win by default and proceed with the foreclosure of your property. Click here for sample Motion In Opposition to Motion for Relief from the Automatic Stay.

Goodluck with your case,
