My mother is going to be served eviction papers soon. We want to avoid the process server. How can we avoid them? I'm only 17 can they serve me the papers?
The reason for eviction is rent payment. However, our landlord would not let us use the kitchen or washer/dryer, and broke into our apartment to steal our cable box. This apartment is considered an illegal apartment, due to the fact that it has no kitchen. She has also broken our verbal agreement, and has harassed us from the week after we physically moved in.
We are not trying to cause a problem, however, we can not pay rent at this time due to a job situation, and she has threatened to short sell the house from under us.
At this point we are waiting to be evicted but, can you explain how to avoid this?
