I have a lease. Ive been late before on rent and always paid, even a mo late. a 3- day was mailed not posted or given to me, 2 mo later a new 3 day was mailed and then summons and complaint given to my sons friend outside of my apt. My son visiting. I rushed and missed filing answer because of work. That was 26 days ago. Why hasnt the sheriff served an eviction w 5 days to move yet? My 16 yr old daughters name was on the amended lease attached to the summons. There are alot of empty apts and here and I wish I could make payments. Im waiting for the sheriff to come any day. Is there a time limit to file a default on me?
