A: The requirements for submitting exhibits with a writ of mandate can vary depending on the specific jurisdiction and court rules. Generally, when filing a writ of mandate on paper, you would need to include any necessary exhibits or supporting documents to strengthen your case.

To ensure compliance with the court's rules, it is recommended to review the local court rules or consult with an attorney familiar with the jurisdiction in which you are filing. The court rules should outline the specific requirements for exhibits and any accompanying documentation that need to be submitted with a paper filing.

Including relevant exhibits can provide supporting evidence and strengthen your arguments, so it is advisable to include them if they are essential to your case. However, it is important to follow the court's instructions and guidelines to avoid any procedural issues or rejections of your filing.

A: Each local Superior Court has specific rules in addition to the governing statutes. You can call the court in which you're filing the Writ and get assistance from their Help Desk who are accustomed to informing In Pro Per (acting as their own attorney). Good luck!
