What is the name of your state? Texas
I'm a single mom of three boys, living in the housing authority in our town. Last month i was real late on my rent $116.??, when i went to pay i was informed that i was evicted and was suppose to have been out on the 2nd of aug. It was Aug. 5th, I had no clue, any way they took it to court and th jp ruled in their favor said i had 3 days to move:eek: well i got on the net to find out what an appeal was, i needed more time, no family ,no money to move and it was labor day weekend, well found about a paupers affivadit that if filed would allow me to stay in apt til decision by court. the housing contested it and the jp disapproved it based on my income, this was filed on fridayaug 30 the judge disapproved it on 12th, the place i was working closed its doors on the 11th, without warn, now im totally broke but the jp said that in order to file the appeal to the county court i must post bond at 2x $177.?? with her, she already has a months rent in regeristy, im confused at this point i can file a appeal with the county court to ask for approval for the paupers aff. right?, and the reason for it being no money, do i have to have the money before the county judge looks it over and now that my job ended can i amend the affid. before it goes to the county judge? today is the five day limit to appeal and i still cant find anyone that can help me , no one knows what im doing,, me neither, somewhere i got lost on the real focus of it all, but i would love to stay her cause i dont have nowhere for my boys and im scared, im serios about no family, but any way can you help?
##### I found out today that I am to appeal to the county judge by way of a form, to have him review and amend the paupers affidavit if needed, then set hearing on the approval of it. If its disaproved again then I must have the money to appeal further. The problem now, Is what form do I need to appeal to the judge, the county judge or clerk do not help with any of the forms, "I'm not a lawyer" was their reply. The Justice supplied me with the ones for her court, but said she didnt have the ones I may need now. I don't know where to find it. This be your own lawyer is hard, good thing I'm not up for the death penalty!
