My response:

If you have to ask this question, then you shouldn't be representing yourself. When you represent yourself, you have a fool for a client. However, if you insist, go to the clerk's office at the courthouse and ask for your free "Guide to Pro Se Litigants".

The reason I suggest this Guide to you, is the fact that this will not be your only question, and you'll keep coming back here for tips and answers (there will be about 100 of them), and the Guide will answer the rest of them for you.

So, for the surest way to lose your case, represent yourself.
