Thinking about filing a motion without using an attorney? This video from the Minnesota State Courts offers helpful information about the steps involved in filing a motion by dividing the process into seven sections. In particular, the video describes how to complete a Motion and Affidavit in Support of Motion, details how to serve the other party by personal service and by mail, and specifies which forms to file with the court. While the video’s dry tone can be boring and perhaps condescending, it’s apparent that the court wants applicants to realize the implications of filing motions incorrectly (including having your case dismissed, paying fines or even paying the other party’s legal fees) and be aware of alternative options such as consulting with an attorney or seeking mediation. If your case is common and straightforward the video could be a helpful resource for going it alone. But if your case is a little more complicated, you might want to consider some of the other options the court suggests.
