You have not provided much detail in your question. Presumably, you mean that you were evicted and then filed a motion for post-judment relief in the form of additional time. If that is the case, then if the motion was denied, there is little you can do--you can move for reconsideration (for the court to re-evaluate its decision) but that rarely works; you could try to appeal, but appeals do not automatically stay or stop an eviction, so this likely will not help. You likely will have to leave on the lock-out date.

If you were asking about something else, you should re-post your question with additional information.

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
