Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I type out an answer or reply.
You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.
I hate to say it, because I know it is frustrating, but there is no way to speed up the process as the tenant has certain due process rights and they have a right to exercise those rights, even if pointless and they will eventually lose. Their goal here is to delay any eviction and they apparently are not new to this if they have delayed it this long.
So the only sure way to ensure that this is the last hearing is to see if they will settle and vacate willingly with you agreeing not to pursue them for anything that they may owe..
Otherwise you will just have to continue on until they have exhausted their options and a judgment is final.... You may be at that point now so this may all be a moot point. A tenant can only stall for so long and you will always have the right to sue them for any delinquent rent and damages once the case is finalized unless you settle to get them out and agree to waive those rights..
