REQUEST FOR APPOINTED ATTORNEY
I wish to have an attorney and cannot afford to pay for one. I request that the court appoint an
attorney to represent me. I understand that:
1. I must provide to the court all financial information requested by the court so the court can
decide if I qualify for an appointed attorney.
2. Financial information I give may be made available to the Attorney General at the end of this
case. Any false information I give may be used to prosecute me for perjury under
AS
11.56.200.
3. If my financial situation changes and I do not tell the court, the law requires my appointed
attorney to do so.
4. If I am convicted, the court will enter a judgment against me and require me to pay part of the
cost of my appointed attorney. In most cases the court will use the schedule below to decide
how much I will be required to pay. However, before the court decides, I will have a chance to
ask the judge to lower the amount. After the judgment is entered, I may ask the court to
reduce the judgment amount if payment would cause manifest hardship to me or my family.
GENERAL WAIVER
I authorize anyone to release to the Alaska Court System all information concerning my assets,
liabilities, account balances and any income source I have had for the past three years. This
includes but is not limited to all current and past employers, banks, credit and depository
institutions, accountants, brokers and credit bureaus.
