Attorneys who wish to be appointed to certain types of cases must meet the certification requirements for those types of cases. For the 2019-2020 Fiscal Year which begins July 1, 2019, we are allowing attorneys who have been approved for the 2019-2020 Fiscal Year to complete a one page Renewal Short Form (details in Applications section).
Court Appointed Attorney Applications are now available for FY 19-20. This year we are accepting a limited number of applications for Dependency, TPRs, Dependency & TPR appeals, and other Children’s Civil Proceedings for MANATEE COUNTY only. Because we only need a few attorneys, not everyone who applies for dependency and/or TPR’s in Manatee may be selected.
