Due to financial difficulties I've had two eviction processes earlier this year. The apartment had no problem with me staying as long I pay everything before the last appeal date. I was able to pay all dues both times. The problem was the eviction on my records. I don't know how I can find another place.
I fell behind again and this time wasn't able to pay all dues. I needed time to hopefully find another place and filed for an appeal with the affidavit of inability to pay. The case got handed to the county court. The day of hearing I was late by a few a minutes and the judgement declared I pay the bond. I filed for a rehearing and received the mail from court one day before the rehearing date. I tried calling the court but they were closed. I couldn't miss work the next day on such short notice and wasn't able to attend. Would there be anything I could do here? How long before the sheriff comes knocking?
I don't mean to give the apartment a hard time, nor waste the courts time. My mother depends on me and I simply want us to move to another place but it has been difficult.
Generally they could seek a writ of possession immediately after the appeal hearing
