Customer Question

I am in the process if getting evicted from my apartment, i was given a 5 day notice to pay or vacate, which because i didnt have the money at that time could not pay. I am still occupying the apartment, my landlord text me the other day and told me that it has been a month since she received my last rent payment and text me to vacate. I text her back saying i can now pay her everything that i owe her in past rent + any late fees. My question is: if i pay everything that is owed to her can she still go ahead with the eviction process?
