Late is late for rent. Second, the court (the Clerk) are not lawyers and cannot give you legal advice. There is such a thing as service by posting in eviction as well, you dont necessarily need to be personally served. The judge likely would not have signed off if there was no service at all. If the writ was executed there is not much you can do now as you are already evicted.

Impossible to determine anything here on line. You could have been wrongfully evicted; or (more likely) the LL had proof of service, and that is why you were evicted (and not paying your rent of course). Only way to know for sure is to take your lease and facts to a good local tenants' lawyer for a consultation.there's really nothing anyone can do for you here on line, sorry,
Hope this helps.
