Representing Yourself

Many people represent themselves in court for a variety of reasons. Some cannot afford to pay lawyers and others believe that they can handle their case on their own. The Alaska Court System has information to help you represent yourself in some types of cases. The Alaska Rules of Court contain the procedures for filing documents and appearing in court for different case types. Even if you plan to represent yourself in court, it is a good idea to talk with a lawyer to understand some of the options and risks in your case.
