For Tenant Use: Answer to an Eviction
The information you will need to complete the answer to an eviction interview includes:
- A complete copy of the Eviction Complaint filed against you.
- Your court case number (can be found on the Complaint)
- Determine how you want to respond to each paragraph in the Eviction Complaint. You will be given the option to admit the entire paragraph, deny the entire paragraph, indicate that you cannot admit or deny a paragraph because you do not have enough information, or partly admit and partly deny a paragraph.

Note: You will be taken to our partnering site, “LawHelp Interactive”.
Don't forget, you must have the Adobe Flash Player to use the interactive forms.
If you don’t have all of the required information, you can still use the interactive forms to fill in the information you do have. If you set up a free and confidential user name and password for the interactive forms, you can start your form, save your answers, and finish completing the interactive forms when you have the remaining needed information. Or, you can complete as much of the information as possible, take your forms to your local CAO office, and ask for assistance with filling in the remaining needed information.
Note: filing an Answer is not required and there is a filing fee to do so. To find out more about filing an Answer and the filing fee, contact your local CAO Office.
