an order for for Final Judgement for Removal of Tenant was filed. The problem is that I had requested the amount owed to be determined by the court, which is one of the reasons the judgment was entered.
I also did not receive notice for the hearing. What can I do?
Possession proceeds on a potentially faster track than claims for damages. You don't say whether default has been entered as to the counts for damages. If so, you should be able to get a judgment entered by submitting the proper affidavits (including nonmilitary and plaintiff's affidavit). Typically a lawyer would prepare a proposed judgment. You can try to contact the Judicial Assistant to see if she or he will tell you the way judge typically handles this and what you need to do for this judge.
There is no substitute for the professional advice of an attorney who knows your case and represents you. My post is not, and may not be relied on as, legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship. Best wishes for a just and expeditious resolution.
