A: Notify your homeowners insurance. If you don't have homeowners then you'd want to consult an attorney, but I would suggest you start with a bankrupcy attorney not that you need to file now but you need to know your options. In the meantime I would avoid talking to anyone from the Fedex side at this time. 1)if you have homeowners just tell them to talk to homeowners. If you don't have homeowners, dont be speaking with them until you have met with the attorney, and at that point be governed by what the attorney tells you.
