OCR FY 2020 Appointment Eligibility Lists
Below are the OCR’s appointment eligibility lists for each judicial district. These are lists of attorneys currently eligible for appointment to represent the interests of children in dependency and neglect (child abuse), delinquency, domestic relations, adoption, truancy, probate, mental health, and paternity cases or to serve as state-paid Child’s Legal Representatives (CLRs).
Please note: The OCR cannot directly assign an attorney to a case. The only way to obtain legal services through the OCR is to have an open case in which the judge appoints one of these attorneys. If you do not have an open case, please consult our Finding Help page.
Prospective OCR Attorneys
OCR attorneys provide competent and effective legal representation to Colorado’s children involved in the court system because they have been abused and neglected, impacted by high conflict parenting time disputes, or charged with delinquent acts and are without a parent able to provide relevant information to the court or protect their best interests during the proceedings.
OCR attorneys represent the interests of children in dependency and neglect (child abuse), delinquency, domestic relations, adoption, truancy, probate, mental health, and paternity cases. The attorney’s role and duties are dependent upon the case type in which the attorney is appointed and the role the attorney serves in that case.Click here to learn more about our contract attorney application process and timeline.
