What If The Person On The Other Side Is Representing Herself? This Is Called Acting “Pro Se.”

Generally, what this means is that your time and my effort will go up.  Why?  Because judges are going to bend over backward to be fair to the “poor” pro-se. Therefore, whatever the pro se does, there is a 99.99% likelihood that the judge will read their statements/actions generously to see if it generally fits what they were supposed to do/say.  If it does not, then in 99.99% of the time the judge will tell them to do it again and do it right.  But I’ve never, ever, seen a judge penalize a person who is representing herself for not following the rules or even adhering to simple courtesy.
