In an unlawful detainer suit, after the defendant doesnt respond in the 5 days, what do i need to file next if all im looking for is an eviction. No cash reimbursement.

Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!

You would file a petition for eviction. The clerk of court can supply same. You would be seeking judgment of possession.

What im not getting is on the request for entry of default form form(ud-116) it says the form is for court judgements for money damages only.

Also theres no written rental agreement, it was verbal. Does that affect the forms in this part of the process?
You need to file a complaint. The fact you have no agreement does not change the need.

Kindly rate me 4 or 5 stars.
