Can I represent myself in an appeal without an attorney?

The Self-Service Legal Center website (http://courts.in.gov/selfservice/) contains information and forms for persons representing themselves in a legal action. This site also contains a link entitled "Getting Legal Help," which provides information on finding an attorney and links to organizations and programs that provide referrals or legal aid.

Person's representing themselves pro se must follow the same rules as parties who are represented by an attorney. The rules, including the Rules of Appellate Procedure (http://www.in.gov/judiciary/rules/appellate/), may be found online or in the public library.

Before making the decision to represent yourself in court, please review the information and videos at http://courts.in.gov/selfservice/2361.htm to determine if self-representation is right for you, find more information about the court process, and see what will be expected of you if you choose to go to court without an attorney.
