I have a pending nonpayment case.

Nonpayment cases are moving forward in housing court. The first step after receiving a petition is to answer and give the court your defenses. You must go to the court in person to answer. Tenants in housing court have a right to counsel or to legal advice but the legal service providers are overwhelmed and you may need to represent yourself.

What will happen on my first court date?
