Don hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.They have to file forcible entry and detainer here.They serve you and you can contest this matter.Once you are served ask the judge for continuance of the hearing date.You may still have up to several months before they can sue you and serve you and you get more time prior to hearing.Try to continue the hearing by letter to the judge and delay it as long as you can. You can also see if the rent or mortgage folks will accept a payment plan as well.Not sure they will do this but it is worth a try.This altogether will buy you more time to try and find a solution or at least other housing.You may also consider a room mate that would help with the rent and avoid eviction. I appreciate the chance to help you , sorry for your loss of loved one and circumstances.Thanks again and the best to you.
