A: Part of the time depends on how quickly the lawfirm moves on the case, how quickly the sheriff can serve your summons, or if they use a private investigator, and the jurisdiction and how quickly they manage their landlord/tenant cases.

Something to consider. If you already have a foreclosure on your credit report and are now looking at trying to rent; you do not want an eviction proceeding to show up on case net. Many landlords check out their prospective tenants on case net to find out if they have been sued for eviction as well as other things. You could have a difficult time finding an apartment if you let it get to that point. Contact the lawfirm and work out a day for you to move out and turn in the keys.
