Trying to make it through the month

Post by OoaudreyoO » Fri Dec 20, 2019 11:09 pm

Our landlady told me that she would need to file for our eviction this month. I've been expecting it to be served so we can apply for rent assistance. I noticed today that on the Public Records website it's been filed but in the wrong names and address.
So, my reason for posting is twofold...

1. We need $900 before Xmas day or $985 before 12/31 to make this go away.
Or
2. Legally, how does this all affect the situation? We obviously haven't been "served" and IDK when we will, if at all. Can I still apply? Or are the guidelines so stringent that there's no way any place could accept the pieces as we have them?

Now... I love my landlady and she's been insanely helpful to me throughout the 11 years over been here. I honestly think she believes its more helpful for us to not be served.

What can I do next?
