We help people (first-come, first served) prepare an answer to an Unlawful Detainer (Eviction) lawsuit against them. The Clinic can also help people who have received a notice to vacate from the Sheriff and want to ask the court for more time to move. NOTE: Come in right away, as you may only have 5 days to file your answer, from the time you were served with the lawsuit papers. We do not handle legal representation at this clinic, but, if you qualify, you can get a free lawyer here.
