Help me to save my apartment.

My name is Yanira Felix. I am a mother of two wonderful children. Like many people, I've always had the illusion of having my own apartment. I worked a lot and God gave it to me. Now I have the risk of losing it. I live in a condominium of 6 apartments. When I moved I thought that because is a small building there would be no problems with the Association. I'm wrong. I found that it was controlled by a married couple (president and treasurer), who did not follow the laws of the State or of the Bylaws of the condo. In addition to that I also discovered that they owe money and they had committed embezzlement. It is obvious that I make them my enemies. Couple of months ago they put a special assessment of $6,500.00 to pay in three months, excluding that the maintenance came up almost to double and he  had approved other special assessment, and the debt continued to rise. Because I could not pay in time they put me a lien for foreclosure, which is the law in Florida. The halves of the 6 apartments are in this situation, for the same reasons like me. I went to the Court and the same judge commented that is a lot of money regarding to today’s economy. The judge gave us 10 days to reach an agreement, but the President said no because he wants me out of there for the reasons that I mentioned earlier. Today the 10 days expired and short by $2,500.00 to be able to pay off the debt. I have to make the payment no later than Wednesday. I feel very sad and disappointed with the laws of this country in reference to the owners of apartments. I don't want to lose my apartment. I know that the economy isn't easy, and must confess that I have left my pride on the floor because I really need help. A home that God gave me no evil man should not take it away. Thanks for your time and may God bless.
