Wondering if anyone had a similar situation. My mortgage is in my ex's name only, and he moved out in July (got arrested actually). He left me with many debts, and I am trying to keep up, but have fallen behind in my mortgage. I NEED to keep this house, as we have four children and can't afford to rent/wont move schools/etc. I am in contact with the mortgage company but no news right now. How can I get through this and keep the house? Being a teacher, I am unable to come up with the money to hire a lawyer, and I don't think he will either. He has paid me maybe a total of $400 since July, and most of that was for joint bills that I had already paid. He refuses to pay me anything else. I have been in contact for free legal help, but I do not qualify based on where I live. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

You say "ex" so I assume your divorce is final. Who was awarded what in terms of the house in the property settlement? And what provisions were made for child support/spousal support?
