I'm waiting need answer ASAP
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

I, like most of the other experts in the Legal categories, can't do telephone calls because of the State Bar rules, etc. However, I am online and can assist in this format.

The issue is that you haven't asked a question, you provided some facts and I asked you what specific question you had there was no reply. If you can tell me what question you have then I can assist.

What can we do to stop writ of possession add the information we send last night
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

There's no additional information listed on your question.

There are only a few ways to stop the writ of possession.

1) You can file the supersedeas bond. However, be aware that the District Clerk has nothing to do with the County Judge, you have to go through the County Clerk's office to file anything with the County Judge. I'm not sure what stage you are at so you may have to file the bond with the Court of Appeals and have them issue a stay of the Writ of Possession. Failing to file a supersedeas bond always allows a civil judgment to proceed forward even though you appeal.

2) If you have some kind of grounds for it, you can ask a district court or a federal court, depending on the grounds, to issue an injunction staying the Writ of Possession. I couldn't even start to guess what those grounds would be because that would take a complete evaluation of all of the paperwork, testimony, and court filings so you'd have to get a local lawyer involved; or

3) File a bankruptcy. A bankruptcy immediately and automatically stops everything and allows you to sort out what's going on. The stay from the bankruptcy judge is automatic upon filing and you have to notify everyone involved and then everything moves to the bankruptcy court although the other side can ask that the stay be lifted at some point and you can ask that you be allowed to continue the appeal and leave the stay in place.

Those are your options at this point.

Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

Was a contest filed?

Also, when was the writ of possession signed by the judge?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No contest was filed at all does this affidavit of indigence cover supersedes bond
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Are you there
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

No, not usually and definitely not automatically. You could ask the Court of Appeals to suspend the need for a supersedeas bond and allow the affidavit of indigency to serve to supersede the judgment but they're not likely to do it since the purpose of a supersedeas bond is to make the person who won the judgment "whole" if you lose on appeal.

Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

The only sure ways to stop the writ of possession are the ways I set out above and the only absolute way are to file the bond or to file bankruptcy.

The property you're discussing serves as your residence, correct?

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
it does and spoke to Appeals Court I can not do a supersedes bond with them
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

You'll have to file it with the County Clerk then but the issue then becomes that they may claim it was too late. Pursuant to Texas Rule of Civil Procedure 510.13 the bond must be filed within 10 days of the date of the judgment.

Did you have an attorney at any time during this?

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

Also, how long ago was the judgment signed? What day exactly?

Ask Your Own Real Estate Law Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
It was signed July 25 2015 and no we didn't have an attorney at anytime and the JP Court and County Court didn't
state the amount of supersedes bond on any of their orders for writ possession
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

You're still within the time so you can contact the County Court and ask for the amount and then file the bond, that will prevent the Writ from being executed.

You can also file a Motion to Set Supersedeas Bond and ask for an emergency hearing on it if the judge won't just give you an amount.

Let me see I can make this clear the original writ possession was done or signed June 18th we filed an appeal which brings us to the second writ of possession that was signed July 25th 2015
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

No, when was the judgment signed, not the Writ of Possession.

the filed to 4th courts of appeals So are we still we then the time limit
Real Estate Lawyer: Dwayne B., Attorney replied 2 years ago

You must be within ten days of the signing of the judgment. That is the only date that matters for the supersedeas bond.
