Title 17, Chapter 12, Section 10 (17-12-10)

(a) When a superior court prescribes an arrangement for providing representation under this article, it may also prescribe a standard to govern the determination of indigency by all courts concerned within the county. The superior court may prescribe the requirements for a proper showing of material factors relating to ability to pay for legal services and the proper form and authentication thereof. In establishing an indigency standard, the superior court shall consider such factors as income, property owned, expenses, outstanding obligations, and the number and ages of dependents. Release on bail shall not necessarily preclude a person from being considered indigent, nor shall it be necessary that a person be destitute or a pauper to be considered indigent.

(b) In a proceeding to determine indigency under this Code section, any person who makes a false statement, under oath, concerning any material factor related to his or another's ability to pay for legal services commits the crime of perjury.

(c) To the extent that a person covered under this Code section is able to provide for the employment of an attorney, the other necessary services and facilities of representation, and court costs, the court concerned may order him to provide for this payment or reimbursement.
