Nice to hear from you today!
I was just about to respond on your other page! Apparently there is an occasional delay with chat
How can I help you today Mike?
yes. I'm in another tough spot. A clerk told me that it takes 4-6 weeks for a filed warrant to get to the marshal. And the landlord did not have a warrant as of Friday. It was rejected. Then another clerk told me that the warrant can go to the marshal within 4 weeks of the original filing date, which was 4 or more weeks ago. Your thoughts and experiences around this?
A judge gave me an extra 30 days, but said that I had to be out yesterday or today
The warrant can go to the marshal immediately however it typically takes several weeks
I've been to court twice over this. We agreed that I wold be out a month ago and he would fix the toilet, which he didn't do. So I went back, as just mentioned
You have done well delaying this matter
yes. thank you. it is REALLY had finding places. few want a dog, other places are not safe enough, my age iss a problem as is my fiarly limited budget
I truly have spent a great deal of time looking. But now I hope you can help me figure out by what day I have to be out
So if the landlord successfuly files today, could he get it to the marshal immediately?
yes technically but a delay is typical
On whose en?, he really wants me out ASAP
The delay is with the clerk of the court
Always my pleasure Mike
Anyway I can find out when she has sent it? One clerk has told me about the warrant when I call him once a week. And there is a friendly young lawyer in the clerk's office many hours a week. He was helpful when I last spoke with him
You can keep calling and hope for clerk cooperation
He's been very friendly so far, but I may have used up my calls. But does the clerk hatmation -
i cant make corrections
you are right that it is buggier.
so could the front desk clerk tell me when the other clerk sent out the warrnat
Yes but they are not required to do so
aol froze. if the chat gets hung up again, email is fine.
I didn't get your response to if the front desk clerks can find out from the warrant clerk whether she has sent out the warrant
justanswer is very buggy so far. This is the third time you have been very helpful around a very critical issue, and I'm goin to write Andy again. And I'll mention that at times you have answered 2 or 3 questions in the same thread. I know he'll like that, as will Adam, head of customer service. I'll write him too.I'll start another one soon. When I spoke with the marshal a couple of months ago (on your suggestion), he told me that it is taking him 30 days to process warrents. Can I trust him/can the landlord get to him and push him to do me sooner since I've been here so long. Relatedly, can I tell him my very difficult situation - I'm 69 with a big dog for safety and have a limited budget due to the huge cutbacks by the dpet of education?
How typical is it in your experience for the marshal to be swayed by either the landlord or the tenant? and someone very high up told me the thing about 2 or 3 questions, but I wont mention it and instead say how patient you have been with clarifications
I didn't see a response to my last msg
