Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.

If the Court enters a Final Judgment for Eviction against the party, you may ask the Clerk to issue a Writ of Possession. The Writ must be served by the Sheriff's Office.The writ here will be served by the sheriffs department within a week and the tenant will be removed and told that if they return to property they will trespass them.They have to take their stuff at that time or it is considered abandoned.

The sheriff here should serve the writ within a short time, these are given priority because the landlord is loosing rent.You pay the sheriff to serve the writ and thats it.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
