It sounds like you have received a five day summons, you need to file a legal answer. You need to speak with an attorney and need to get something filed before five days has expired. I handle these matters and offer a free consultation. Thanks

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.
