I understand the steps of an eviction, but I don’t want to use an attorney. How do I file for an eviction by myself?

Unfortunately, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office is unable to assist you. We are more than happy to assist you with the process the Sheriff’s Office is involved with and service of the required paperwork, but we are not attorneys and therefore are prohibited from giving legal advice or assistance. It has been suggested that use of the internet or law library may be useful to one that is wishing to proceed with the process without an attorney.
