calm down, second of all you have to pay the rent, you will be giving a chance to pay the rent in court, dont leave the apartment.
do this, let him try to evict you, tell the court you will pay the rent, and whatever penelties u owe. remember he cant forcibly lock you out of the aparment either, without a judge ordering the eviction, there are procedures and steps that have to be followed in order for you to be evicted.
if he does an illegal lock out call the police.
google illegal lockout as well.
the marshall is the only 1 who will be able to evict you with an order from a judge, but u can ask for a stay for eviction as well, provide evidence.
you have rights it can take up to 6 months to a 1 year to be evicted. I suggest u do this.
calm down, relax, and realize you have to pay the rent, in the future go to a social service agency for legal help if you have problems. try to remember that you will be ok.
when you are at the court you can ask for legal help services, try to get some now. you are entitled to it because you obvious claim u are a single mother.
the issue here is he may try to evict you but the law states you can pay the rent.
google tenants rights via eviction, the law is their to protect you and the landlord.
p.s. dont let your landlord intimidate you for being late with the rent, if this is the first time this happen let the judge know this.
all will work out
