I was served with a foreclosure lawsuit, what should I do?

If you have been served with a foreclosure lawsuit in Florida, you have 20 days to file a proper legal response in court. You must admit or deny the allegations, raise affirmative defenses, and file whatever counterclaims you may have against the foreclosing bank. Failure to file a legally adequate response could result in a default being entered against you and the loss of your ability to fight the foreclosure. It is highly recommended that you do not try to do this on your own. Schedule an appointment with a local, experienced foreclosure defense lawyer who can help you with this process.
