LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas residents facing summary eviction action may avoid a trip to the Regional Justice Center by using online filing from a computer or cellular telephone.

The process is user-friendly; tenants will answer a series of questions and their answers will automatically prepare the required legal documents.

No need to print or scan any documents. Tenants will also be prompted to answer questions that will be used to determine whether the required filing fee may be waived by the Court.

Tenants can find the guided interview at https://nevada.tylerhost.net/SRL/srl/.

Once there, tenants should select the “SUMMARY EVICTION: Tenant’s Answer (Clark County)” option. A video is available on the website that explains the process. Additional assistance in using the online interview is offered by the Civil Law Self Help Center at (702) 671-3976 or https://www.civillawselfhelpcenter.org/.

Though the clerk’s office will still accept paper filings from tenants, they urge those that have access to a cellular phone or computer to use the online guided interview to avoid long waiting times and crowded lines. For those that do have to make the trip to the courthouse, face masks are mandatory and all customers will be required to maintain proper social distancing.

Those facing evictions in North Las Vegas or Henderson will still need to print and file their forms with those respective courts.
