There is a new Unlawful Detainer Summons that went into effect on September 1, 2019.
The summons reflects the change in the law advising the defendant that they have “5 DAYS, not counting Saturdays and Sundays and other judicial holidays after th(e) summons and legal papers are served…” to file a response to the lawsuit. Most counties will not issue the old summons for unlawful detainer cases.
You can find the new form HERE.
