A: If you have lived in New Jersey for more than 6 months, than New Jersey, not Florida law will govern. You need to retain an experienced matrimonial attorney to file the appropriate motion for you. You need to retain the best mortgage foreclosure defense attorney you can afford. You should not be restricted by geographic factors. Pick the best lawyer you can find and remember one rule: a good lawyer is generally never cheap, and a cheap lawyer is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
