    Answered . Dear "How do I respond to a 5 day eviction notice?":

    You have five business days to get a response in to the Clerk of Courts.
    And you have to send a copy of the entire response to all other parties (the Plaintiff-landlord or
    the Attorney for the Plaintiff-Landlord).
    You should have received a summons and a complaint, plus exhibits.
    The summons should tell you very explicitly what you have to do.

    You may hire an attorney to respond and i highly recommend it.
    You can also file the response yourself: follow the summons' instructions.
    Good Luck!
