If you are a Nebraska tenant and have been give notice that your lease is terminating, you should try to remedy whatever it is that is causing your landlord to evict you. This means paying your rent or curing a breach of the lease. If you do not feel that you have done anything wrong, you should wait for your landlord to file the eviction suit. When he or she does, you will receive a complaint and summons which will give you an answer date and a hearing date. You should follow the instructions carefully because if you don't answer or fail to show up for your court date, default judgment will be issued against you (in other words, you will lose).
Defending against an eviction can be an intimidating process on your own. Seeking the advice of an experienced Nebraska evictions lawyer can be a great help to your mindset and your chances of winning.
