In order to offer advice I would need to have a bit more information regarding your situation. I do specialize in Short Sales and Foreclosures and might be able to offer you some kind of advice. I do agree, you do want to contact a Real Estate Attorney. If you need any recommendations, I am happy to give you some contacts.
