Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
You can file your own motion for a stay of execution of the writ, but you would need to do so immediately, as in today, if the scheduled date for the eviction is tomorrow..
This is a good sample of a stay that you can just modify to show your court and the parties and the use the case law that is provided to file it and hopefully get it in front of the judge before the sheriff appears to execute the writ and deliver possession to the owner.
Ex Parte Stay of Execution
I do not believe that there is any additional fee for filing the motion for the stay, but you would want to ask the clerk to be sure as each county has different fee schedules.
There is an additional fee for filing the motion for the stay, but you need to contact the clerk to see what it is as each county varies. If you don't have the funds, you can file a "fee waiver" and they will allow you to file for free.
