Child Welfare Appellate Defense Program
The Appellate Indigent Defense Division's new Child Welfare Appellate Defense Program serves all counties except counties along the Wasatch Front and Washington County (i.e.3rd-6th class counties). Contract appellate attorneys represent indigent parents and guardians in participating counties seeking to directly appeal their juvenile court decisions in child welfare and termination of parental rights (i.e. child welfare) cases.
