Are you receiving solicitation from companies to stop your foreclosure, is it on the front page

There are specific laws that protect people from debt collectors, Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, does not allow any debt collector to speak to a 3rd party about the debt.

Ah, no longer signing off with the "I am not an attorney" (even though you make that claim in your screen name) and "This is not legal advice". Does this mean you passed your bar exam? Or even now have your paralegal certification?

Sorry, you don't get free passes, not trying to pass yourself off as an attorney.

@ JoAnna...

The attorney you work should have told you this, but it's possible they don't know what you are doing. So, I'm going to do you a favor.

You need to take a look at the California Business and Professions Code, Section 6126(a). Since I understand you are busy studying for your paralegal certification, I'll save you some time and provide the important stuff for you here.

"6126.  (a) Any person advertising or holding himself or herself out as practicing or entitled to practice law or otherwise practicing law who is not an active member of the State Bar, or otherwise authorized pursuant to statute or court rule to practice law in this state at the time of doing so, is guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in a county jail or by a fine of up to one thousand dollars ($1,000), or by both that fine and imprisonment. Upon a second or subsequent conviction, the person shall be confined in a county jail for not less than 90 days, except in an unusual case where the interests of justice would be served by imposition of a lesser sentence or a fine. If the court imposes only a fine or a sentence of less than 90 days for a second or subsequent conviction under this subdivision, the court shall state the reasons for its sentencing choice on the record."

So, do you still want to identify yourself as "CAShortSaleAttorney"?
