Guide available on how to be own attorney

Citizen Staff Writer

The Arizona Supreme Court has created an advice booklet for people representing themselves in civil cases.

“Guide for Self Represented (‘Pro Se’ or ‘Pro Per’) Appellants and Appellees” covers cases, including tax and family law, in Superior Court, the Arizona Court of Appeals and the state Supreme Court.

It doesn’t cover appeals from city or justice courts.

The guide explains how the courts are linked, the steps to filing an appeal, how to write briefs, what costs and attorneys’ fees are involved, how to file a petition for review and important terms.

As the guide notes, non-lawyers who represent themselves in court are expected to follow the same rules as attorneys.

The guide includes some forms as well.

Guides are available at www.supreme.state.az.us/appellateguide.htm.

For more information, call the clerk of the Arizona Supreme Court at 602-452-3396.



Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
