In completing the Adult and Juvenile Indigent Defense Fee Claim Forms you must provide information about what type of case your client is charged with. For juvenile claims all claims would arise out of a case under Iowa Code Chapter 232.

Adult fee claims could arise under a number of different code sections. In the online claim form the code sections are in the database.  You can start typing the code section, description or offense type and code section choices will appeal.  Select the code section of your case or claim. The hourly rate for your claim is set by the code section you've selected.

If your client is charged with an offense that is not on the list please contact the State Public Defender’s Office (515) 242-6158 or for further assistance.
