    Oneself, myself, I, me

    On official documents/applications (Visa and legal documents), there are questions that ask who will pay the fees (or similar questions).

    Usually people would write "myself" if they themselves are paying for them. What I am wondering is whether it would be too informal or wrong (grammatically) to use either "Oneself, I, or Me" in answering such questions in formal/legal writings.

    Thanks in advance.

    "Myself" is fine. "Me" too.

    "Oneself" doesn't make sense.
