Chicago, IL -> First District of Cook County Court
I'm the plantiff (going Pro Se) in a forcible entry and detainer against my roommate who has not paid his rent. Today was the first return date and I was informed that he was not served the summons. He has not been in the apartment since I gave him the 5-day notice in December.
Today, I filed for constructive service by posting (with the affidavit and notice of pending action). However, I filed the wrong court date: choosing one that was over a month away instead of 2 weeks. The clerk I was filing with noticed this as he was entering in the paperwork but did not let me change the date.
How do I go about changing the court date to an earlier one so I am not waiting over a month for my next court date?
