How can I get my the eviction dismissed before the court

Customer Question

Hi. How can I get my the eviction dismissed before the court date since they file a complaint claiming non-payment of rent before the due date? Is there any defense against eviction in NJ in an owner occupied two family dwelling? I have read there is not. Or is there an exception?
