A comment I would like to make is.......why do you want to hire and attorney? Hiring an attorney makes you a ward of the court, and the attorney is bound by his oath to correct all reversable errors. The attorney can only submit motions(requests), while an individual, in propia persona, can demand everything. Just a thought about this subject.

Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :
FORMA PAUPERIS, English law. When a person is so poor that he cannot bear the charges of suing at law or in equity, upon making oath that he is not worth five pounds, and bringing a certificate
from a counselor at law,that he believes him to have a just cause, he is permitted to sue in forma pauperis, in the manner of a pauper; that is, he is allowed to have original writs and subpoenas gratis, and counsel assigned him without fee. 3 Bl.
400. See 3 John. Ch. R. 65; 1 Paige, R. 588; 3 Paige, R. 273; 5 Paige, R. 58; 2 Moll. R. 475; 1 Beat. R. 54.
This is typical of judges in dealing with those who don't want to use a
private corporate bar member's services. You may find, however, the court may have a specific form they use for those needing to file in forma pauperis. pd
