Customer Question
I was given until...

I was given until sept 15 to cure back rent. They sent my file to a attorney who is filing eviction against me. What are my rights

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

Wisconsin

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

They stated this was sent to the attorney yesterday who is filing today

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

That would be it

Thank you for using JA. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs., and I am here to help.

I am a certified expert on JustAnswer since 2009, with nearly 100% in 5 star ratings. So, we should be able to work through your problem.

I appreciate your patience as I review your question. I will post my response shortly.

This is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.

Lawyer: Loren, Attorney replied 11 months ago

You have the right to stay in the premises until the court issues a writ of possession and it is executed by the sheriff.

In other words, the landlord can not dispossess you without legal process and you can remain in the premises until then.

The eviction process will take 4 -6 weeks.

Please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.

There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.

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

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
