For the Courts to recognize motions, the motions have to be valid enough. Whether the motion is filed by an attorney or a pro se litigant does not affect the validity of the motion. It is advisable to confirm the format, deadlines and other specifications related to the motion with the clerk of the court or pro se help offered by the court you are filing with.

Motions are filed to request for a court order and hence must explain in detail, the grounds for seeking the order and the relief sought through the same. As long as such points are accomplished the motion filed by pro se is recognized. Many courts let go minor mistakes made by pro se litigants in such legal filings depending on the severity, but advise the pro se litigant to avoid such repetitions in future.
