THE NOTICE:

Generally, a notice is the first step in the eviction process. Either the landlord or our Law Firm can fill out this notice and have it served on your tenant. If our firm is filling out the notice you can be assured that it will be filled out and served in accordance with the law. We now wait to see if the tenant complies with the notice.

THE LAWSUIT:

After the notice expires, our Law Firm will initiate the Unlawful Detainer action. A lawsuit is prepared by our staff and filed with the court. It is then transferred to the process server for serving. Most tenants are served in 3 to 4 days from when the lawsuit is filed. Thereafter, we obtain a report from the process serving company and we will either fax or mail you a letter regarding service of your lawsuit.

THE DEFAULT PROCESS:

If your tenant has not answered the lawsuit, we will then prepare additional papers for filing with the court. These papers will be reviewed by the court, and they will issue a Judgment for Possession. This generally takes 7 to 10 days.

THE SHERIFF IS ENGAGED:

Once a judgment is obtained; a “Writ of Possession” is delivered to the Sheriff’s office. They will process it and then go out to the property and post a “5 Day Notice to Vacate” on your tenant’s door. After the 5 days, the Sheriff will set up a lockout time where you or your agent will have to meet the Sheriff and have the locks changed. We offer a “Lockout Management Service” which will meet the Sheriff, do an inventory, and will change the locks for you. You will receive more specific information on this service near the conclusion of your case.

PERSONAL PROPERTY LEFT BY THE TENANT:

If your tenant leaves any personal property behind, please contact our office and we will send you a form which explains the legal process for disposing of your tenant’s belonging.

THE MONEY JUDGEMENT:

You will be receiving information near the conclusion of the eviction process for obtaining the money judgement and its collection.

Tips to Find the Best Process Server in California

It is fairly easy to find process servers out there, especially in California, you may find a lot of them, all claiming to be the best and the most experienced one at that. Whether it is a simple rent notice process serving order, a service of a bank levy, service of process of a subpoena or obtaining records on a court copy request, there are many firms and legal companies that will make tall claims.

So how does one choose wisely? ​
Here are Countrywide Process’s Tips to find the best process server!

Knowing what you want in a process server is crucial when hiring one. Some process servers are supposedly superior to others, as you may have heard. Finding the most seasoned firm is essential if you want the greatest service possible. Keep in mind the larger the firm, the
harder it is for them to manage client’s needs

To find the best companies, search reputable online state association directories for local process serving businesses. It’s best to solicit advice from friends, family, and co-workers as well. Online searches are among the easiest ways to find a process server nowadays, however it’s not so easy to choose the best legal company for your needs because there are so many of them.

If you want to select the best process server, you must understand which characteristics are most important. Here are a few things to consider for finding the best process server for services such as county recording, processing serving, skip tracing etc:

  • Ensure that they are experienced: Selecting a process server with extensive experience in the field is something that is strongly advised is what we here at Countrywide would say. This depends on your budget because process servers generally charge the same but some charge more based on the level of knowledge and depending on the specialty services, they perform due to having more experience in certain practice areas. Take the time to know why you’re looking for a process server and how they will fill the need to affect the level of experience you need. You will require more experience with more important and urgent service assignments.
  • Establish Credentials: Take your Google search a step further and investigate possible process servers to make sure that their qualifications are up to par with state standards. To ensure that your “delivery” is legally valid, process servers must adhere to certain protocols, such as being Registered in the County they conduct business in, and be Bonded and Insured.
  • Check success rate and testimonials: You must look at the process server’s effectiveness and client satisfaction rates, just like you would with any contract professional. Years of experience aren’t necessarily a reliable indicator of success rates, so spend some time reading online reviews in addition to investigating their ratings.
  • Examine their costs and rates: Naturally, the lower the overall cost will be, the less time your process server must spend trying to complete the assignment, is a fair notion of how things are done in everyday business, like they say, “you get what you pay for”. Utilize all the most recent facts you have about the person being served and delve deeply into your memory vault. Even the smallest detail can help you serve your papers more quickly and lower the overall costs of the procedure. Expect to pay more if the person receiving service lives outside the immediate area. If your target is likely to be hostile because there are other active legal matters, expect higher expenditures.
  • Effective Communicators: The knowledge that the task has been finished is the most crucial component of employing a process server. Make sure your potential process server is technologically advanced and that they’ll contact you right away by phone or email if there are any issues with the delivery or when the service is finished. Make sure you are aware of the above-mentioned tips going forward and we hope these tips from Countrywide Process help you navigate through what may seem like tricky terrains.

Electronically or eRecording Abstract of Judgment – Instructions

 

 

 

STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS

Step 1: Complete the Form

To place a judgment lien against real property, you must complete an Abstract of Judgment.

Step 2: Accompanying Document(s)

You may also need to include a memorandum of costs if you incurred additional costs.

Step 3: File Your Documents

File the following items with the court: Check your court for filing options. Some courts mandate eFiling.

If the court you are trying to file with is a Mandatory eFiling Court, you will need to place a County Recording Order.

If the court you are trying to file in does not provide eFiling, you will need to prepare the following.

• Abstract of Judgment (original + 2 copies)
• Memorandum of Costs After Judgment (original + 2 copies), if applicable
• The filing fee (currently $40, current fees at
• Self-addressed stamped envelope with sufficient postage to return the documents to you.
File your documents at the filing window, or in dropbox. The clerk will return the original
abstract of judgment to you with the court’s seal on it. This may take several weeks.

Step 4: Record the Abstract of Judgment

You will need to record your abstract of judgment in each county where the judgment debtor owns
the property. You need only one abstract of judgment per county, even if the debtor owns multiple
properties. You may record an abstract of judgment even if the judgment debtor does not currently
own property; this will allow a lien to be placed against any property the debtor may acquire in the
future. When using the CountrywideProcess.com portal to eRecord, please ensure your documents are scanned in black and white, in 300 DPI, and have a 1/2 margin around the document in order to avoid rejections. Once the Abstract of Judgment is recorded, the County Recorder will return the recorded Abstract of Judgment electronically.

Step 5: What Happens Next?

The county recorder will provide notice to the debtor that you have recorded the abstract of judgment.
You will not be paid automatically, but if the debtor refinances or sells the property, you may get paid
your money with interest.

The lien created by the recorded Abstract of Judgment continues for 10 years from the date of entry of the money judgment and can be renewed for additional 10-year periods, until the judgment is satisfied. When you need to renew your Abstract of Judgment, you will need to prepare new Abstract of Judgment form with the updated amount owed to you (including any accumulated interest), and you will need to record it in the appropriate county or counties.

WHAT ARE FAMILY LAW CASES?

As e-filing or electronic filing of specifically mentioned documents related to family law cases has been made mandatory by the Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles that went into effect from November 15, 2021, litigants must have a knowledge of what actually counts as family law cases and the documents that need to be mandatorily filed.

Family law covers a vast area of family relations and related concerns. Family laws regulate laws regarding marriage, divorce, illegitimacy, inheritance, guardianship, adoption, treatment of children and related matters. It even concerns the economic matters related to these relations. Family laws deal with marriage law, marriage license, prenuptial agreements, divorce requirements, community property laws, and child support guidelines.

If you have no knowledge regarding the functioning and reach of these laws, it becomes really important to hire a Family Law Attorney, especially if it is a divorce case, child custody matter and these types of cases are the ones that would require you to have a considerable knowledge of the law.

If you are going through a family law case, the emotions might take the best of you and hence, hiring an attorney that can talk your case and make the necessary negotiations on your part becomes a dominant factor. Countrywide Process offers experienced, certified and knowledgeable attorneys who provide unmatchable assistance to the litigants.

Serve your Tenant when Eviction Moratoriums Ends October, 2021 or does it?

 

Eviction Service California – Starting @ $85.00

The End of the Eviction Moratorium Is a Wake-Up Call for Democratic Lawmakers

Recent Supreme Court rulings have highlighted the party’s staggering legislative impotence.

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have a heated discussion on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

DREW ANGERER/GETTY IMAGES

Last week’s Supreme Court ruling to end the federal moratorium on evictions was perhaps a canary in the coal mine for what would transpire a week later, with the high court’s decision not to prevent Texas’s treacherous new anti-abortion law from going into effect. The court’s conservative majority’s move to curtail the moratorium, a cornerstone of the pandemic relief effort, once again dispensed a status quo–altering ruling off their so-called “shadow docket,” over the dissent of the liberal trio. The end of the federal eviction moratorium will precipitate a crisis that threatens to displace 3.5 million households.

The Roberts court’s choice to let Texas’s abortion law go into effect underscores the indecencies of a right-wing judiciary. But it bears mention that the end of the eviction moratorium is not really the Supreme Court’s fault. The blame for that falls squarely on the Democratic-controlled Congress. Amid a litany of crises, the Supreme Court’s recent action (and inaction) provides a timely gut check on the Democrats’ overall governing and reelection strategy.

It’s actually remarkable that the moratorium stood for as long as it did. As The New Republic’s Matt Ford explained last month, the authority that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cited as the basis of the moratorium was flimsy at best, relying on an extremely generous reading of a single clause in the Public Health Service Act of 1944. That it managed to coax an initially empathetic ruling from the conservative Supreme Court, albeit temporarily, is a minor miracle.

At the time, Justice Brett Kavanaugh made it clear that the moratorium was not long for this world: “If a federally imposed eviction moratorium is to continue,” Kavanaugh wrote, “Congress must specifically authorize it.” Last week’s shadow docket decision reaffirmed this: “If a federally imposed eviction moratorium is to continue, Congress must specifically authorize it,” it read.

Despite such clear guidance for the action Congress needed to take, the White House responded to the Covid housing crisis by pointing toward figures far from Capitol Hill as the solution to the problem. On August 26, White House press secretary Jen Psaki ran down a wide-ranging list of people who needed to step up and help. Members of Congress were conspicuously absent from the request: “President Biden is once again calling on all entities that can prevent evictions—from cities and states to local courts, landlords, Cabinet agencies—to urgently act to prevent evictions.”

A few days later, Psaki returned to the lectern to declare, “Attorney General Merrick Garland is calling on the entire legal community to take immediate action to help prevent unnecessary evictions during this public health emergency.” This vague and nonsensical call to the entire legal community (whatever that means) came before the White House called on any legislators to do anything to stop people from losing their homes unnecessarily. (The White House did not explain what makes an eviction “necessary” or “unnecessary.”)

It’s all a rather farcical way of coming to grips with reality: Between the Democrats who are bankrolled by the National Association of Realtors and those who favor maintaining the filibuster over passing an agenda, there’s not enough Democratic support to save vulnerable Americans from losing their homes. Had Democrats been more willing to put their control of Congress to better use, they could have actually helped out their constituents in this time of crisis, rather than doing nothing.

The Democrats’ midterm strategy is, thus far, baffling. The party wants to brag about a legislative agenda that’s mostly blocked by the Senate filibuster. They need their voters to “out-organize” a titanically well-funded Republican movement to suppress the vote, all while fighting for their reproductive rights and/or being pushed out of their homes.

There’s a winning message to be had, nevertheless. Democrats can boast a strong platform of popular policies that might ameliorate some of America’s biggest problems, and can make a riveting case that the Republican Party is as cruelilliberal, and irresponsible as ever. But these midterm arguments are undercut by the Democrats’ refusal to act on them—to use the power they have in the little time left to make the case that they should continue to hold power.

This week, as Texas’s draconian new abortion law went into effect across the Lone Star State, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed on Twitter, “This fight is only just beginning.” That every “fight” is perpetually on the verge of getting started without Democrats ever entering the ring is precisely the problem.
