 in response to whoknew...   Thank you.  I'm sure you are right about the law regarding tenant eviction in California, but this girl is here in Florida.  To the best of my knowledge if you have a place of residence you cannot be forced out onto the street. It must go through the court system.  They will in fact give you a certain length of time to move, but I understand  it can  be extended for up to 6 months.  The way the economy is,  6 months really isn't that long.  Thank you for responding

here is more on the subject from California law - basically, it states that you have to be given a resonable amount of time to remove yourself and your belongings from the residence. After that period of time ( i.e. 30 days) the owner of the property has the right to retain your belongings and remove you from the home.

 in response to MERCY2010...   Yes, as long as you have been living there they cannot throw you out.  It is your place of residence also.  If they admit they have been letting you live there they cannot just throw you out on the street.    I wondered about working at Day Labor,but then I wondered what would happen with your children.   I am very sorry for the stress you are under.  Hope you will get some answers from dept. of children and families tomorrow.  Hoping for the best for you.

 in response to MERCY2010...   I certainly hope the dept. of children and families will help you.    Have you got any family in California.  What about your childrens father?  Is there any way he would help.  When do you have to leave?  You know I was thinking  those people actually cannot under the law throw you out!!  They can go to court and start eviction proceedings,  but they legally cannot throw you out!!

 in response to MERCY2010...   I live in Lake County, which is approximately 2 hours from you.      I'm wondering,  is it your landlord forcing you to move or people you are living with?    I can't understand why you would only receive food stamps etc. only one time as it is an emergency. Do they expect the people you live with to support you?  Couldn't you call and explain your situation to them?  It is my understanding that if you are given emergency funds it should continue for 6 months unless your situation changes and you no longer need it.   When exactly are you expected to leave?  I cannot believe anyone could put you out on the street especially with 2 small children.   My suggestion,  in case you haven't already done so, is to contact the state agency that provided you with emergency services for the one month and ask for help.   Please let me know.
