I'm very sorry to hear about your situation. In your case, the only way that you can delay a writ that has already been issued is if you file for bankruptcy. The bankruptcy petition will create an automatic stay which prohibits collection attempts against you at least for a few months while your bankruptcy is proceeding.

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.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
