Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
My name is***** am an expert on the forum. I reviewed your discussion above, and I wanted to clarify my understanding.
You are currently represented by counsel, and they will be filing a demurrer on your behalf.
That is good - but I am concerned about the timeline (35 days after you have been served is far too long, you have 5 days to file a responsive pleading to a UD complaint, I assume that this may have been a typo and that your attorney is acting promptly, and has not confused your UD with a civil action).
Is there a specific legal question that you have for us today?
No, you need to file a responsive pleading (this can be a demurrer or an answer - you do not need to file both at the same time) within 5 days.
It appears that your attorney has things under control.
This will generally give you additional time (35-90 days is a reasonable approximation - if your local attorney has given you this estimate I would go with that, it is based on local backlogs in the court and will be based on local experience, it varies by county).
It sounds as if you have things in order, and you are continuing to look for affordable housing (so you are doing the right thing - continuing to look). If you have not already done so, contact your County Housing Department/Authority directly, they should be able to assist you with your search.
