Application for Fiscal Year 2025 Contract

Information for Applicants
This is the application for the provision of attorney services as Guardian ad Litem (GAL), state-paid Child’s Legal Representative (CLR), and/or Counsel for Youth (CFY) for the contract period beginning 7/1/2024.  More on what we do >>
The Office of the Child's Representative (OCR) is mandated (CRS 13-91-101) to provide legal representation to children and youth in Colorado. OCR currently provides best interests representation in all of its case types (CLR in Domestic Relations proceedings and GAL in all other case types), as well as client-directed representation for youth age 12 and older in D&N and Foster Youth in Transition proceedings.  Pursuant to these statutory mandates, this office will contract with and train attorneys to provide services as Guardians ad Litem, state-paid Child’s Legal Representatives, and Counsel for Youth. OCR maintains appointment lists of contractors eligible for cases in each judicial district.

All attorneys who contract with OCR are independent contractors, not employees of the OCR. Prior to engagement as an independent contractor for the OCR, the parties will enter into a separate written contract setting forth the duties and responsibilities of the parties.
OCR is committed to achieving a diverse workforce and to providing an environment free from discrimination and harassment based on race, age, color, religion, national origin or ancestry, sex, gender, disability, veteran status, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or pregnancy.  OCR strongly encourages applications from people of color, those with lived experience, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and other underrepresented and historically marginalized groups.  OCR particularly values lived experience in the areas of child welfare and juvenile justice.
Deadline: Applications must be submitted no later than 11:59pm on Sunday, March 31st, 2024. Only applications submitted electronically through this online form will be accepted. Upon submission of this application, each applicant will receive a confirmation and copy of the application via email.
