In order to get an extension, you must go to the court where the eviction was ordered and you need to file a motion for extension execution on writ and you need to explain to the court why you cannot leave in 5 days and how many days you would REASONABLY require to get out of the property. You must have good cause for the delay, such as health reasons or a short delay in availability of your new premises, but the court is not likely to give you more than 5 additional days to remove yourself from the premises.

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.
