Counsel Appointment in Dependency & Neglect Language Added to CJD 04-05

The Colorado Supreme Court released amended Chief Justice Directive 04-05 in August 2013. CJD 04-05 addresses appointment and payment procedures for court-appointed counsel, guardians ad litem, child and family investigators, and court visitors appointed by the State Court Administrator’s Office.

Attachment B to CJD 04-05 was revised in August to include language regarding appointment of counsel for children subject to dependency and neglect proceedings. The counsel appointment is in addition to the GAL. No other changes were made to the Chief Justice Directive.
