  • Form: E-Pro se - Proceeding Without A Lawyer

    E-Pro Se is a user-friendly, inter-active Web application, developed by the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri, that allows self represented (pro-se) litigants to prepare court documents and forms electronically. The program gathers necessary information through an on-line interview and then uses the information provided by the user to create documents that may be filed with the Court. All forms are printed legibly in a document format organized to provide the court with essential information about the type of claim the filer intends to present for resolution. Self-represented litigants are able to use E-Pro Se to create documents required for civil rights complaints. In the near future, packets will be available for Social Security and employment discrimination complaints. Content Detail
