INSTRUCTIONS FOR EVICTION COMPLAINT A complaint consists of Count I and Count II. Count I is for the eviction process only, (for possession of the property.) Count II is completed when filing for lost rent, damages, etc. These can be filed for at the same time, but are issued separate summons. If you file for Count II when filing the Eviction, a pre-trial date will be set and you will need to appear at that time along with the defendant for the judge to hear your case. This date is set far enough in advance so that Count I may be completed. The amounts in Count II can be amended if need be after possession of the property is obtained and additional damages are assessed. Once possession is obtained, the landlord may also dismiss Count II if so desired. **If you file for Count I only, there will be NO Pre-trial scheduled. If damages are assessed and Count II wasn't filed at the initial filing of the Eviction, then a Small Claims case will need to be filed as a separate case. Contact the Civil Law Department at (904) 284/269-6302 ext. 6408 if you have any questions regarding completing this form.
