Hello: This isCustomer Welcome to JustAnswer! I am reviewing your post, and I will post my response very shortly. Thank you for your patience.
I am sorry to read about your difficulties.
I was going to suggest that you file a Motion to Vacate the Judgment. Since you have already done that, the other thing you can do is to immediately file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Once the bankruptcy is filed, the Sheriff must be given a Notice of the Bankruptcy Filing so that the execution of the Judgment of Eviction would be stopped. However, if the Judge made an error and refuses to vacate the Judgment, then you can file notice of appeal with the Clerk's office and request that the Execution of Judgment of Eviction be stayed pending your appeal. You can obtain the form to file this notice also at the Clerk's office.
You can go to your local Bankruptcy Court to obtain the forms to file for emergency Chapter 7 with just the Voluntary Petition, Statement of your Social Security Number, list of your creditors, application for waiver of the filing fee, and the pre-bankruptcy counselling certificate. The rest of the forms must be filed in 14 days. Click here and here to locate your bankruptcy Court and to download the bankruptcy forms.
You may also use bankruptcy petition preparer to assist you with the forms.
