Default Foreclosure advice and being sued

Hi. My house was foreclosed on. I am filing for bankruptcy and a have a lawyer.

I got this in the mail yesterday. Can anyone explain what it is and what should be done?

It is a letter stating that the plaintiff, Federal National Mortgage Association, requests that the referenced matter be continued to a future Call Docket set by the court so that service may be obtained.

Thanks.

I would highly suggest you call your attorney, since you already have one.

Yes, call your lawyer and give him/her the letter. Sounds like plaintiff needs to serve you with something and needs additional time to effect service. Since you have counsel, they will need to serve him/her.

I don't know your situation.

Reading into your statement - "My house was foreclosed on". You lost your home. There are only a handful of states with a redemption period after a foreclosure.

Getting a letter from the Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA), colloquially known as Fannie Mae, they now own your home. If you would of received a letter from the lender holding your mortgage, I would say there is hope to save your home. Now since Fanny Mae owns your loan, you will have to pay them in full, to get your home back. Again I do not know your story.

I hope you are not a victim of some unethical attorney, who is thinking about his wallet before thinking about your well being. You no longer own your home? Why are you going to a bankruptcy attorney? If you had other unsecured debts, doing a Chapter 7 would be a better resolution (no payments). If the home was foreclosed upon was the only debt - it is after the fact. Why?

I believe there is more to your story.You need to explain more about what is happening right now and what lead up to this.
