Have you been served with eviction paperwork (a Summons and a Complaint-Unlawful Detainer)? You may only have five days to respond! At this clinic, attendees seeking assistance with answering an unlawful detainer (eviction) complaint will be guided through the Tenant Power Toolkit (www.tenantpowertoolkit.org) to complete the necessary court forms.

Participants must bring their Summons and Complaint-Unlawful Detainer to the workshop. 

This workshop covers:

  • How to use the Tenant Power Toolkit
  • How to identify defenses against the eviction and complete responsive pleadings
  • How to request a fee waiver
  • How to use the Tenant Power Toolkit to find legal support

The Eviction Answer Tool will work for tenants who live anywhere in California who have been served a Summons and Complaint-Unlawful Detainer. Tenants in LA County (if they qualify for a fee waiver and are within their filing deadline) will get the option to have their documents be filed electronically with the court. All other tenants will have to file the documents the Toolkit creates in person, at the courthouse listed on your Summons and Complaint.

Online registration available at: bit.ly/answerworkshop. Walk-ins will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis.

Check-in begins at 9:15 a.m.

You must arrive by 11 a.m. to ensure getting assistance.

If you arrive after 11 a.m., we can’t guarantee you will be seen.
