Information you’ll need to provide

  • Your address and Social Security Number.
  • The monthly income and expenses of each person in your household, including yourself.

Helpful tips

  • Your landlord is not allowed to evict you without a court order. They may send you a letter but until you receive a court-ordered eviction notice (which looks like this), you cannot be evicted. 
  • Act fast. You have five days to respond to an eviction notice before you lose automatically.
  • In addition to applying to Legal Services, you should also fill out the CDC Moratorium  because it makes it illegal for you to be evicted before January 31, 2021.
  • Continue to pay your rent, or whatever amount you can towards rent, if you can do so without forgoing basic necessities. If your landlord isn’t accepting rent payments, try to set that money aside because the court may ask you for it.
  • If you don’t hear back within 2 business days after submitting the application, please call 305-576-0080 and let the operator know you completed an online intake application and haven’t heard back.
  • If you need another option, you can respond to your eviction notice using this form builder.
