Step 1: Give notice to the Tenant
Step 2: Fill out forms
Step 3: File forms with the court
Step 4: Serve the Defendant
Step 5: Defendant can choose to respond
Step 6: Eviction trial
Step 7: After the Judgment
After we file your case, we serve the Tenant, and they will have 5 days to respond. If no answer is filed with the Court after the fifth day, we move forward with a default judgment. Meaning the sheriffs/court can evict the tenant without further notice.
If your tenant does reply, we will file Request for Trial, meaning the court will set a court date usually no later than 20 days out. At this hearing the Judge will determine the rent due and other issues such as when the tenant has to move out by and/or other agreements you may have with your tenant.
We are with you every step of the way until your tenant is fully evicted. We can also help you enforce/collect the monetary judgment after the tenant has moved out.
