Customer Question

Went to court today. Ordered and adjudged that a Writ of possession be issued on August 3, 2016. I really don't want the house any more...just need additional time to move.
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Georgia

JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: No...not really

Just filing the writ should place an emergency hold on the case until the judge reviews your motion. This should buy you some time. Here is one from Florida that you can use as a go-by to draft your own.
