I just got an eviction notice, and I have to be in court…

Customer Question
Hello. I just got...

Hello. I just got an eviction notice, and I have to be in court November 30th. I have the rent payment, but the only thing holding me back is a fee of $120. My lessort says, she cannot take the rent unless I pay the fee also. I've been living in my apartment for almost a year now, and I've always paid early, sometime almost 1-2 weeks early. But I'm just having financial problems this month. Do you think the judge would patient enough with me, to let me pay the day after? Because, I get paid the day after the hearing any advice please, I'm freaking out a little.

Lawyer's Assistant: When we are ready I'll take you to the appropriate web page. Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I live in Louisiana ma'm

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

Yes, an eviction Notice for me to show up in court.

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

No, just that I wanted to know if I could have time to pay the $120fee

The fee can be waived. Courts often don’t enforce it. You can negotiate or push it to court and settle there normally without the fee. Please let me know if the reply is acceptable by responding “yes” or “acceptable”

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.
