Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
You have to file a motion brought on by order to show cause. Call the clerk and explain the situation and they will tell you what you need to bring. You will have to call the other side to tell them you are going in to make the request for an emergency stay.
An order to show cause is a request to have a motion heard on very short notice and it would contain a request to stay the eviction for the one week you need.
