How to Evict a Tenant (4 steps)

1. Notify Tenant About Violation

The first step to the eviction process is to provide notice to the tenant that they are in violation of the lease terms, either through non-payment of rent or for some other term, such as creating a nuisance. The forms are as follows:

2. File Complaint and Summons

The next step in the eviction process, assuming the tenant hasn’t responded satisfactorily to step one, is to file a Complaint and Summons for a Writ of Restitution with the Local Circuit Court in the county in which the property is located.

Filing fees vary by county:

  • Natrona County: $160[4]
  • Campbell County: $10 filing fee, plus $50 sheriff service fee[5]
  • Sweetwater County: $160[6]

3. Serve Tenant

The court will issue a summons to be served on the tenant by a process server which requires them to appear in court. The tenant can then file an Answer with the court.

4. Receive Court Order

If the court finds in the landlord’s favor, the court will issue a Writ of Restitution and the sheriff will be authorized to move the tenant out of the premises.
