This would not be something a Realtor would help you with except to advise you to obtain an attorney to handle the legal end, and who will direct you to someone who can assist in getting your credit realigned after such an unfortunate circumstance. If I were to give any advice at all, I would say move forward, start rebuilding your credit and your life. Unfortunately what has happened is bad history and maybe you should hand everything over to an attorney for him/her to handle, if that's what you decide. In the meantime, you yourself should make every effort to just move forward with rebuilding your life. Otherwise, you will see yourself two years from now in the very same spot you're standing right now.
