A: There's some important steps you need to take to make sure you have the strongest case possible.
Child support is based on a formula and she doesn't get maintenance just for asking.
If your house has equity, then foreclosure might not be the best option.
Contact a lawyer to get advice personalized to your situation.
A: Each parent has a presumed right to see his or her children, and that right can only be restricted by the court upon proper petition. Financial issues can be addressed only generally give the lack of information. Whether to let the house go into foreclosure will depend an examination of the marital finances, which is not possible here. Under certain circumstances a party may be entitled to maintenance and/or child support. I suggest that you schedule a meeting with an attorney to discuss your case.
