: I heard that this week the marshal can't execute warrants of eviction. Is it that the court is not issuing warrants? Do you have any information?

: Bob

Why should this week be any different? Wasn't Rudy scheduled to move the children of homeless families into foster care this week?

Reality check: the court systems, like many other gov agencies and private businesses, slow to a crawl the last two weeks of the year. I've never heard of a legal prohibition of evictions during this time. And if your landlord's lawyers are among those who bribe court clerks to speed the paperwork through, a warrant can issue in as little as two days: it usually takes an average of two weeks from request to issuance.

Go to the DoI homepage, , the Marshal's Handbook is posted there. Also: they have recently added a FAQ page about evictions... Once you are served, you can call the Marshal to find out what day you are scheduled for eviction. PS: you can also request a delay from the court: read more about it on TenantNet Home.
