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.
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.
