Where can I find legal help with a foreclosure?

Individuals faced with loss of a home through foreclosure/trustee sale or dealing with issues related to a foreclosure can apply for free and reduced fee legal services through the Access to Justice Online Intake System, the link is also available on the top right of AZLawHelp under the “LegalLEARN” section. Individuals may also contact legal aid directly, however due to high call volume there may be long wait times on the phone and the phone system may disconnect calls when overwhelmed. To find the legal aid agency serving a particular county in Arizona, select the desired county in the drop-down under the section titled “FIND FREE LEGAL HELP” on the right column of AZLawHelp.

The State Bar also maintains a listing of all Arizona attorneys on their website, and certifies “specialists” in eight legal areas. (Not all attorneys seek such certification, however.) For more information on certified specialists and to see lists of specialists, visit the section of the State Bar of Arizona’s website concerning specialists.

  • Due to piling credit card debt and a recent diagnosis of cancer I may be headed towards foreclosure on my condominium. My question is if I cannot save my home will I be subject to any deficiency judgments against me because my residence is a condominium? I've read about if the property being less than 2.5 acres and a single family dwelling is safe from deficiency judgments. Do condos fall under the same protection? Is there anymore light you can shed on this situation for me?
