Child' father lost his job and kicked out of where he was staying. Started living with his mother while trying to find a new job and a new place to live.

If the child has a "sleeping space," (own bed or area to sleep, but most preferably a bedroom), the Court may still permit the parenting time to continue.

Look at the rental agreement or lease you signed, read what it states about paying for utilities and follow the written document that you have. I don't understand why you would be paying for his electricity so I cant figure out what the agreement-if any-you have with the landlord.

Q: If I have a specific eviction date is there a way for me to make payments on the past due amount and have it be legal

Eviction date is 12-31-18. Im waiting to see if I can get state and/or a church's assistance.

Joseph Kelly Levasseur answered on Dec 12, 2018

You can always ask the landlord to extend. If the eviction is not court ordered then they must evict you through the courts, which will take about 14-30 days to get the hearing date, the court may also allow you to pay the amount due plus costs and void the eviction.

notice. can security deposit be applied to next month rent as no notice was given. monthly rental

Joseph Kelly Levasseur answered on Nov 5, 2018

Was there anything in writing evidencing that it was a month to month rental? Be very careful with security deposits, the courts do not like it when they are not given back, and not giving it back can result in attorney fees and damages against you for not doing so without proper legal grounds.
