Firstly, I am so sorry to hear that you and your family are going through this. I have seen homes where the children's toys were still sitting in the bedroom and the family had been removed, so I can tell you that you need to be extremely proactive. Call the agent whom you are dealing with for cash for keys and notify them right away of the 3 day notice to quit. Usually there is a phone number to contact also for the legal department. The law Library in the Nevada County Court House has all the legal information on this subject, so don't just listen to opinions, go to the legal library and ask the clerk for help, there will be a legal response you can file to help delay the process. You may even be able to lease your home back from the bank on a month to month basis as long as you are willing to allow it to be shown, many banks would rather have it occupied and have some income and maintenance occurring.
