Evictions are not enforced on state or national holidays nor the week prior to or following Christmas, nor on the day before, the day of, nor the day after the National Day of Thanksgiving. Evictions may be cancelled due to severe weather or other exigent circumstances and are at the discretion of the Lake County Sheriff's Office. After the Sheriff's Office's Administration authorizes the cancellation of evictions due to exigent circumstances, the Civil Process staff will call the landlord/owner at the provided contact number to discuss details and reschedule at no additional cost. It is the landlord/owner's responsibility to provide a contact number at the time of scheduling - the Sheriff's Office will not make multiple attempts to contact a landlord/owner if a voicemail recording is reached.
The following eviction forms are also available through the Lake County Circuit Clerk
and Center for Self Representation
