Approved Statewide Forms — Eviction Forms

 

The following forms have been approved for use by the Supreme Court Commission on Access to Justice and are required to be accepted in all Illinois courts. The forms are ADA accessible, and you can handwrite or type into the PDF form.

IMPORTANT: You will need Adobe Acrobat or free Adobe Reader XI or higher in order to save completed forms. Additionally, the forms work best if you access them using Internet Explorer as your web browser.

If you use Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari, do NOT fill out these forms directly within your browser. You MUST first SAVE or DOWNLOAD each form as a PDF to your computer before you start to fill it out. If you fill out a form on these browsers, you will not be able to save your progress.

E-filing: If you are e-filing any of these forms, you will need to "flatten" the form so it cannot be changed after you complete it. You flatten the form in one of two ways:

  1. If you completed the form in Internet Explorer as your web browser, select the "Print" button on the form, and when the "Print" menu pops up, choose "Save as PDF." Save the form to your computer and use this "flattened" form to e-file.
  2. If you downloaded the form as a PDF and used adobe to complete it, go to the "File" menu at the top, select "print", and choose "Adobe PDF" from the printer dropdown menu.  You will be told to save the form. Use this "flattened" form to e-file.
  3. Before you e-file any form you have "flattened," open the form to make sure it is not blank and looks the way you want it to look.
 

Note: Governor's Executive Orders affect evictions in Illinois through October 17th

  • Governor Pritzker ordered that no one start an eviction case through October 17th (Executive Order 2020-55, issued on September 18th, reissues and extends Executive Order 2020-30, as amended by Executive Orders 2020-48 and 2020-52, in its entirety).
  • A landlord may only start an eviction case if the tenant:
    1. Poses a direct threat to the health and safety of other tenants,
    2. Poses an immediate and severe risk to property, or
    3. Is in violation of any applicable building code, health ordinance, or similar regulation.
  • It is illegal for a landlord to lock out a tenant without a court order.
  • For questions about evictions during this time, look for legal help in your area at illinoislegalaid.org.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also ordered the Temporary Halt in Residential Eviction to Prevent the Further Spread of COVID-19 on September 4, 2020 and remains in effect through the end of 2020. For more information about the CDC Order, see Illinois Legal Aid Online's Housing, coronavirus, and the law blog (search for "CDC" on the page or scroll down).
