1. File your appeal
You can appeal the hearing officer's final decision in court. Depending on where you live, an appeal can be filed within 35 days and six months from the decision date.
You can file an appeal without a lawyer, but appeals are very complicated, so it is best to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Learn more about hiring the right lawyer by watching this video.
2. File your motion
You must file a motion right away to put a "stay," or delay, or a "temporary restraining order" (TRO) to get the Housing Authority to continue to pay its share of the rent during the appeal process.
If the court agrees to the motion, the Housing Authority will have to continue to pay the landlord until the court has made a decision about the appeal.
