    Answered . I agree. In certain situations you can vacate the previous court order, and get a chance to have your case heard in court. If you decide to file a motion to vacate, make sure you also leave a copy with the sheriff’s office. I strongly suggest you see an attorney asap, but in any case, do no wait. Please remember, Illinois is not a self-help state. The landlord must go thought the sheriff’s department to regain possession.

    Answered . Bring all your papers to an attorney ASAP. Without seeing the papers, there is little we can do to help.
