You need a notice of motion, motion, and sometimes a memorandum of points and authorities. You also need to serve it on the opposing side and reserve a hearing date. You would also sometimes want to draft a proposed order. You would also make sure that it is used on pleading paper.
I would strongly recommend finding a good tribal lawyer who is familiar with tribal law, particularly landlord-tenant issues. This is a niche area of law and it is important that you find quality legal representation.

The answer to your question is, yes. The OBI's lab is generally used for most cases throughout Oklahoma, including tribal courts. This discussion does not constitute legal advice, and it is recommended that you speak with your personal attorney regarding this matter.

It is difficult to answer your question without knowing exactly what comprises your friend’s estate. But, yes, it is possible for you to be appointed by the court to handle the distribution of her estate. That will probably require the siblings to sign consents.
