Thank you for your patience as I looked into this. So, depending on the judge, the court does have the discretion to handle the eviction process in 2 alternative ways;
1. the order for orderly removal. This allows the tenant an additional 7 days to move. This is generally allowed when there is a new residence, but there may be strategic issues with the move.
2. hardship stay. This is when the tenant requests a hardship based on being ill, elderly or disabled. The court can allow the tenant to remain for up to 6 months.
Neither of these are guaranteed, so one would need to request it from the judge.
Another option is to discuss it with the landlord, to have them agree to drop the eviction for a certain number of days; they usually only consider this when the tenant has a set plan- ie a specific move in date, location, etc,
