I fell behind on rent this month because I did not receive my Va disability. I have all attentions on the 1st but I go to court on the 23rd. My rent is 945 plus utilities . I usually give the 1000 even for rent. I have been doing this for 16 months. My 5 day notice is wrong then. If I can prove to the judge the balance is wrong will he/she dismiss the case
These are important questions, but I think you will get superior guidance if I move this for you over to a
different category of law.
The judge will hear testimony, review evidence and reach a decision as to how much rent is owed. If you owe nothing, the case will probably be dismissed. If you any amount, the case will probably go forward.
You need to consult with a landlord/tenant attorney in your area for more specific advice. Good luck.
