Step #3- If you have not notified the defendant of your claim: US Legal PRO will mail the defendant a demand letter stating the basis of your claim and how much you are asking for. If you have notified the defendant of your claim: US Legal PRO can still create such a demand letter to help you get a quick settlement.
US Legal PRO will send you a summary of the petition packet for your approval via email. There you can review the packet and request any changes that are needed.
Step #5- Once Us Legal PRO has your final approval, we will eFile your petition.
Step #6- After court accepts your petition, we will give the defendant "Legal Notice".
Step #7- US Legal PRO will send you a Court Stamped Petition and Instructions on what to do next.
Step #8- Go to the court on the day the court is scheduled to hear your case and present your documents. Just to be on the safe side, take 3 copies of all the documents to the court. Once, the judge signs the judgment, turn it in to the court clerk.
We provide a very unique service as we are a state-certified electronic filing service provider. We will do all the process-centric court related work and you go to the court for the hearing. It is not a great idea to hire a third party company and have them go to the hearing as you understand your situation better than anyone else as you are the landlord.
