: It's a disposess--according to it we're supposed to be in court tomorrow at the latest. This is going to be nearly impossible for me b/c I just switched jobs, and the last thing I need is to piss off my employer right now. What time does the court open? If I'm at the doors, how long will it take me? I would rather not take my roommate's word right now; I'd rather show up in person. Also, there is the risk that he'll just move back in with his parents or something (we're both just out of school, but unlike him I don't have any living family.)
Your roommate should answer the non-payment petition. This means going to court. It does not mean seeing a judge at this point or paying money;
you have to answer the petition, and get a date in front of a judge.
Check tenant.net/Court/Howcourt/contents.html for advice on how to
answer a non-payment petition. It might take a couple hours depending on
how busy court is. This is really something your roommate has to
deal with if your roommate's name is the only one on the lease;
if your roommate is evicted you have no particular right to the apartment.
I suggest going to court with your roommate to do some hand holding if
you feel it's necessary.
