Sorry have had a crazy past week or so since Ive been on.

Customer Question
I've found a decent place...
Sorry have had a crazy past week or so since Ive been on. I've found a decent place to stay for now and it's good because no one on the opposing side knows where I am. And you have been a huge help thank you very much. I will rate after I submit this and I have another question. I got a call from a police officer claiming to work for the Montgomery county Constable's office and said he has papers he needs to serve me and my wife and I told him I couldn't make it down to the Constable's office until Monday afternoon and I've been thinking, if I'm already moved out, they can't evict me and they have no reason to serve me papers. Correct? What happens if I don't show on Monday at the Constable's office? They can't arrest me can they? Because I'm not violating any laws, im already out of my parents house and have been for 2 weeks now

If a tenant has already vacated then there would be no cause for an eviction; however the owner may sue for past rent, or for damages to the property.

If one does not show they cannot be arrested unless a warrant is issued; however the court may order that the person be responsible for any additional costs in serving the party which would be necessitated by a failure to appear for service.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
