I am School bus driver and I didn't work very much with the school board. So I am short around $130.00 on my rent. I do not want to be kick out of my apartment. This is my first time going to be late not be able to pay my rent before August 11. I will be going back to work full time my normal school hour picking up kids to go to school. My next paid check getting paid will be on August 17 amount of $600.00 or $1,000.00. and on August 30 may be same amount on August 17.... I need help because I just move in this new apartment no long ago.....
No. Sending the rent to the Court wont do anything in your situation as described.
Your best bet is to talk to your landlord candidly about your situation to get out ahead of what could become a problem if you are short or dont pay at all.
You need financial help not legal. If your LL wont work with you, then sell things or borrow the money to raise the $130.00 and re-pay those folks when you get your paycheck. The LL is not required to wait for rent to be paid and can evict if you dont pay on time.

I agree, this is a financial problem, not a legal one. Best bet is to direct all of your efforts getting what the landlord demands, and/or making a deal with the Landlord.
Consult a good local tenants lawyer for advice; if you have little or no income, and no substantial assets you should be able to get assistance from your local legal aid.
Hope this helps.
