I filed my answer with the help of a free attorney, 1/6/15 which was my 5th day after receiving the notice but did not give a deposit. Just now I saw online that the landlord filed for a writ of possesion, 1/8/15. Is that it or do they have to wait for their motion to be approved. I still have heard nothing on my "Answer" to the eviction
Both. The court has to approve the issuance of the writ, but if you failed to comply with 83.60(2) and deposit the rent sought in the complaint in the registry of the court, done deal.

If you filed a motion to determine rent the judge should set the matter for hearing before the eviction. At that hearing the judge will determine how much you are required to put into the registry and if you do not the landlord get an immediate default judgment and a writ of possession will be issued other than that Mark is correct, it's a done deal.
