An eviction case is a lawsuit brought to recover possession of real property, often by a landlord against a tenant. A claim for rent may be joined with an eviction case if the amount of rent due and unpaid is not more than $10,000 excluding statutory interest and court costs but including attorney fees, if any.

(Governed by Rules 500-507 and 510 of Part V of the Rules of Civil Procedure (PDF Document). To the extent of any conflict between Rule 510 and the rest of Part V, Rule 510 applies.) You may also click on our fill-able Eviction Petition form.
