On the day of your trial, arrive at the courthouse early and check with the clerk to find out in which courtroom your trial will take place. The judge will announce your case and ask if everyone is ready. If you have any questions, ask them then. You will take an oath, swearing to tell the truth. Then tell your story as best you can and present your evidence and witnesses. After the landlord has taken the oath and told their side of the story, the judge will make a decision in the case. The decision is called the judgment. If it is in your favor, the judge will give you a judgment against the landlord. The judgment will say how much is owing. The clerk of the court can assist you in collecting your judgment by explaining execution and garnishment. Ask for help.
