Financial Questionnaire to Establish Indigency

If you face charges which carry penalties with a consequence of magnitude, e.g., fines of more then $750.00, jail time, license and/or registration suspension, probation, community service, etc., and you are unable to afford an attorney, you may apply for a public defender.  An application for a public defender must be completed.  The Judge will review your application and determine if you are eligible.   

If a public defender is appointed to represent you, the court may assess an application fee up to $200.00.   If the Judge appoints the public defender, the court will then provide you with instructions for contacting the public defender to prepare for your case.
