Thank you for your question.
Is there already a court judgment of eviction or any court order or orders relating to this?
I need to ask where this is happening, many towns have local eviction ordinances.
The answer is Yes you can ask for a stay of execution of the judgment, see § 31.83 of http://www2.courtinfo.ca.gov/protem/pubs/bg31.pdf
That cite refers to Code of Civil Procedure § 918, which states:
918. (a) Subject to subdivision (b), the trial court may stay the enforcement of any judgment or order.
(b) If the enforcement of the judgment or order would be stayed on appeal only by the giving of an undertaking, a trial court shall not have power, without the consent of the adverse party, to stay the enforcement thereof pursuant to this section for a period which extends for more than 10 days beyond the last date on which a notice of appeal could be filed.
(c) This section applies whether or not an appeal will be taken from the judgment or order and whether or not a notice of appeal has been filed.
I hope this information is helpful.
