The court is a very traditional and polite place where a certain demeanor (way of acting) is expected. When you are representing yourself, you are trying to persuade a judge or court commissioner that you are right. You must act and speak in a way that helps you with your case.
There are two quizzes that you can take that will help you consider if you should represent yourself or not. Please start with the "Shoudl I Represent Myself Quiz" below. Only take the Property Quiz if you or your spouse own property.
Following these tips will go a long way toward helping YOU help yourself in court.
