If you, a friend, or a loved one are being threatened with evictions, there are resources out there. It is critical that you go to any court hearing scheduled. The Evansville Bar Association is staffing the eviction court with volunteers to go over your rights if you are faced with eviction proceedings. Please do not skip any court dates set, even if you know that you have rent due. Often, the Court will encourage landlords to work with tenants facing eviction, and you may be able to stop the eviction proceeding. If you have already been evicted, there are still resources available to make sure that you get any deposit back that you are due. Again, make sure you go to the hearing.
If you have any questions, you can call the Vanderburgh County Clerk at (812) 435-5160 or the Evansville Bar Association at (812) 463-3201. You do not have to make an appointment to meet with a volunteer lawyer. They will have a table set up as soon you go in the building where you can talk with the volunteer. The hearings–and the attorneys–are presently located in the Old National Events Plaza.
