In Ohio, unless a lease has terms to the contrary, Ohio law only requires landlords to give 3 days notice prior to filing an eviction for failure to pay rent. So, if you are behind in your rent and your lease does not provide any additional requirements regarding eviction, your landlord is authorized to provide a 3 day notice. Please note if the landlord accepts any rent after serving you with the 3 day notice they are not authorized to go forward with the eviction.

verbal notice is not sufficient
as my colleague said, first a three day notice
then they file an eviction in court
your court date will be about 3 to 4 weeks later
then about 7 to 10 days after that you have to actually move out
however, if you pay inbetween you should be able to stay
if landlord files eviction in court
and will not take the rent
then save up your money
and go to the eviction hearing
tell the Judge that you have the money to pay the back rent and that the next months rent will be on time
that should allow you to stay
