To assist in trying to reduce the person‐to‐person contact that comes with all possible indigent defendants completing and signing a financial disclosure form, the Ohio Public Defender’s Office is waiving the applicant’s signature requirement at this time.  To be clear, at this time, a defendant’s signature on the financial disclosure form IS NOT required to initiate representation.
