I have proof that the photos were posted on the revenge porn site by taking a screenshot of the website. The website has since remove the photos. But the photos were still post it and I'm not sure what other things have been done with the photos as well. I am wanting to copyright my photos so that I have complete ownership of them.

Tomorrow I hope to submit a request and payment Online to have my photos copyrighted. What can I do in court to represent myself well in the meantime and what other factual information can I bring with me to court this week to help me received another hearing to see this through to completion.
