If you do not have a lawyer by the time you have court, you should still ask for a Jury Trial at your first court hearing. You should also let the Judge know that you are working on getting a lawyer The Judge will most likely send you and opposing counsel to get a trial date. If you do not ask for a Jury Trial at the first court hearing, you may lose the ability to get that. You did not indicate what kind of Notice your landlord served on you or what 'violation of your lease is alleged. That is important to know in order to defend the evicion.

You need to request a jury trial at the initial court date, whether you have an attorney or not. Based on your question, it appears that you don't know much about court procedure and you would be well advised to speak with an attorney at your earliest moment. Asking for a jury trial may delay your case for a week or two, but if you don't know how to defend yourself, you may just delaying the inevitable.

I have a 14 year old son. His biological father voluntarily terminated his rights 2 years ago and my husband of 10 years adopted him. Now his biological father is trying to contact him. Is there anything I can do legally to prevent him from cont...
From a legal standpoint, there may not be any action you can take to prevent this.. You may want to try to talk to the father to determine why he now feels that he wants contact. You may reason with him that the age of 14 might not be a good time for your son to have contact. You could suggest that the biological father write to the child and keep the letters until your son is older. Now that the biological father's parental rights have been terminated, he has no legal right to have contact.
On the other hand, if the two had a good relationship prior to the adoption, you may want to see if your son wants any contact and try to work through allowing some restricted contact.See question

You Need a Court Order to change your son's name. To file for a legal name change requires consent of the father who is on the child's birth certificate. You need to give notice to the father who may agree or object. If he does neither, you still need approval to change the child's name if you can prove to the court that the name change is in the child's best interest. It appears from your question that you already have any attorney. Either address this with him or her, or contact another lawyer to assist you.See question
His father is unemployed, so I would like to get him covered under my insurance, while he is in college. The only way is if I'm his legal guardian .
You may not be able to obtain Guardianship but you can legally adopt him as an adult. Adoption would require that you file a Petition for Adoption and have your husband (his father) join in the petition; you do not need consent of the mother. If you are unsure as to how to do this, please contact an attorney that is well versed in adoption law and procedure.

If you successfully completed an adoption 5 years ago, meaning that you filed and finalized the adoption and a Judgment Order was entered, it is unlikely that the matter can now be reversed. You may want to contact the attorney who handled this matter initially if he or she is still available. If you were not represented by counsel, you should take all your paperwork to an attorney well versed in adoption law and procedure to review all your paperwork. Many lawyers, including me, do offer a free initial consultation for such matters.
As far as your niece's god-daughter's statement about getting a 'bigger check for two', she is clearly not understanding what she is nor is not entitled to in an adoption.See question
