Selecting the filing party

After selecting a case and filing category and type (and clicking Continue), a user must identify the party or parties the user represents in the appeal. A pro se filer must identify himself or herself at this stage of the process. Parties are identified in the Party Filer area, which shows a list of all the parties in a case. A pro se filer's name will appear in this area.
