Crow Wing County to Seek Bids for Legal Representation in Child Support & Protection Cases

The Crow Wing County Board of Commissioners approved a motion to go out for bids seeking contracts for legal services so the county can provide representation in certain types of cases involving child support or child protective services.

Crow Wing County is required by law to cover the costs of any cases where Community Services believes a parent’s rights to their child should be terminated. With something as serious as potentially taking away someone’s parental rights or any child support matters, the county believes that regardless of someone’s situation, they should have access to quality representation.

“It’s for those who — who are in cases involving children in need of protection, termination of parental rights, child support contempt cases, commitment cases, including sexually dangerous psychopaths,” said Tim Houle, district administrator. “We have some contractors who represent some people who are indigent in those types of cases.”

This will be the first time Crow Wing County has bid for new contracts since 2018.
