Introduction

Welcome to the District of Delaware’s website designed to assist individuals representing themselves.  Such individuals are referred to as proceeding "pro se" which is a Latin term meaning "on one's own behalf". 

This section is intended to be used as an informative and practical resource for pro se litigants and is not a substitute for legal advice from an experienced attorney.  The information is procedural in nature and should be read in conjunction with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Local Rules of this Court, and the individual practices of the Judge assigned to your case.
