Real Estate Law
Have Real Estate Law Questions? Ask a Real Estate Lawyer.
First off, I am sorry you are having to go through this issue. I am a licensed attorney with over a dozen years of practice experience in this area. It is a pleasure to assist you today.
You need to go to your court date and ask for a continuance. If you have already missed court this morning, then it would be worth it to go to the courthouse and ask to speak with the judge. They may not allow it - understand that aspect as it would be a ex parte communication. If you are allowed to speak, explain your situation and ask for more time. If you are not allowed, you need to file a motion to set aside the judgment entered against you. The grounds to set it aside would be your inability to make it to court today. Again, this may not be honored by the court as they are sticklers about being present at court or letting them know why you cannot ahead of time.
The only real hope you have here is to ask for a continuance or a stay of execution of the order of eviction in order for you to avoid homelessness.
I wish there were other options, but that is it unfortunately.

Did you have any other questions I may answer?
That certainly complicates matters. You may need a letter or signed statement from your ex-husband (since he is the legal owner by name) that you have the right to deal on his behalf relative to the court proceedings. The court will ask you for some legal basis for speaking with them relative to staying for 30 days. Therefore, you will need something from your ex in this regard.
Let me know if you have any other questions and please rate my answer positively as welll.
