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 $20,000, excluding statutory interest and court costs but including attorney fees, if any.

Paperwork to file an eviction can be completed online via the electronic filing for civil cases link in the left navigation menu or completed in the office.
