There is no particular paper that is mandated to be filed to represent yourself in civil litigation in Oklahoma. However, if you represent yourself, called pro se in legal speak,you must be familiar with all the rules of the District Court in front of whom you will be appearing. Further, you will need a good understanding of all the Oklahoma Rules of Civil Procedure and must follow them correctly. Practice and Pleading forms are generally required in certain formats. Acting as your own attorney, even with a Law Degree, usually is not a good idea.
