Resources for Tenants and Landlords
These self-help resources are informational only. They are not legal advice.
Eviction Resolution Program
A new Eviction Resolution Program has been created in the 18th Judicial District. This program can assist landlords and tenants by providing information about the eviction court process and connecting individuals to services in the community that may be able to help. This could include mediation, which is a chance for a tenant and landlord to work with a neutral party to reach an agreement.
Review a list of community resources to find agencies that may be able to help.
If you need help from the Eviction Resolution Program, please complete the Tenant Intake Form.
Before you file an eviction case you may want to consider other options.
