The law requires the landlord's process server to leave a copy of the papers at your door as well as to serve you with the pleadings by regular and certified mail. In addition the Court will send you a post card. If you did not get any papers, they will arrive soon. You can also go to the Court house and look up your case. A seasoned landlord tenant lawyer can get you 3-4 months to pay the back rent that you owe the landlord.
