In order to stall off a modification, our mortgage company falsified a lien against our mortgage. After years of fighting, they allowed the modification to go through, however, they tacked an extra $30,000. onto our principle, with no other explanation except to say, the charge is due to the length of time it took. I am trying to find the right lawyer, or firm, who can help us with this. The amount of our mortgage did not drop, it actually ended up being higher, due to the extra money. What can we do, we were strong armed into excepting this horrible situation, or lose our home. I've spoken to several different law firms, and written to a few more, but I've found no one who either believes me, or feels as if we were wronged. I'm not a legal professional, but somewhere there has GOT to be a solution. My husband, is working 7 days a week, to meet our mortgage, I am a home maker, but I am taking in mending and babysitting to help out. This is NOT how our empty nester days were supposed to be. This mortgage company took total advantage of our hardship, and I know we are not the only victims of this company. Please, if someone even just has a little bit of advice, which might send me in the right direction, I would be so appreciative. I'm really up against it, trying to hold this all together. This is not a pity party, but my husband was recently diagnosed with Diabetes, he should not be working so many hours, but this is the only way, this home was supposed to be our retirement. I have put this in God's hands, so maybe He can find someone through this forum who can help me.
