Pro Se Information
Pro Se: For one’s own behalf; in person. Appearing for oneself, as in the case of one who does not retain a lawyer and appears for himself in court.
Pro Se filings are accepted for contested, uncontested, simplified divorce matters, cases to establish paternity, custody (only between parents or temporary extended family custody), child support, visitation, step-parent adoptions, name changes, modifications, motions, summons, subpoenas, judicial hearings/trials and general magistrate hearings.
The Clerk of Court does not give legal advice, tell a person what the law is, represent them in court, tell them how to testify in court, or tell what their rights are.
Forms are distributed at a minimal fee by the Clerk of Court or are available to print at Online Forms and Services.
