I am sorry to hear about this situation.
An attorney will likely charge about $2,500 to $5,000 on the foreclosure in total or lump sum, depending on the nuance and the complexity. However, one can after recoup fees from the other party via court order.
If this is a (a) residential property and (b) deed of trust contains a power of sale clause, there is no need to go to Court and the lender can foreclose without going to court in a matter of weeks. Otherwise, at least 3-4 months is typical, if not more.
