The Eviction Process in Five Steps

STEP 1: EVICTION NOTICE

Eviction notices can be a 3 day Pay Rent or Vacate notice, 10 day notice to Comply or vacate,  or  a 20 day notice to Terminate the tenant

$25.00 Attorney Fee + $75.00 Process Service

STEP 2: SUMMONS & COMPLAINT

These documents start the lawsuit, and they must be personally served on the tenants.

$75.00 Attorney Fee + $75.00 Process Service

STEP 3: FILING CASE & ORDERS

The amounts will depend on whether the Tenant responds to the lawsuit.  If the tenants fail to respond to lawsuit, we will ask for an order of default.  If the tenants respond to the lawsuit, we must schedule a show cause hearing.   

Order of Default: $300.00 Attorney Fee + $145.00 Court Costs

Order to Show Cause: $100.00 Attorney Fee + $237.00 Court Costs

STEP 4: COURT APPEARANCE

If the Tenants did not respond to the lawsuit, no hearing is needed, and we can skip this step.

 $375.00 Attorney Fee + $25.00 Writ Fee
