Forms - Eviction (Unlawful Detainer)

You may not need all of these forms. Or you may need more forms. If you are not sure which forms to use, talk to a lawyer. Click for help finding a lawyer. If your court’s self-help center helps with evictions, you can also ask them for help.

NOTE: All California courts use the same basic set of forms. But some courts have special, local forms, too. To see if you will need any special, local forms, contact your court clerk or check your court’s website. The forms may be posted on their site. If not, the site will list the address and phone number of your local courthouse.
