Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You can fight this after you move out only if you can produce evidence that the process server did not serve you. As of now, the court believes he served you properly, meaning you bear the burden of proof to provide evidence he did not and the landlord's attorney cannot testify regarding what he told you so you need actual evidence.
As far as how much time you will have to leave, the original order would stand and you have to get out within that number of days unless the landlord agrees to give you more time.
