My boyfriend has a court appointed lawyer and he is no help at all and need a new one before he goes to trial in a month and I need help how do I get him a new court appointed lawyer before it's too late
Have you ever heard the phrase, "Beggars can't be choosers"? Or "You get what you pay for"? You're experiencing now just what those mean.
If your complaint is just that he's not very good and isn't giving you all the personal attention you want, I'm afraid you're finding out that this is what you get for free. I'm not knocking all court-appointed attorneys. But they're overworked and underpaid, and generally scrambling to represent more clients than they can juggle.
On the other hand, if you think your attorney is committing malpractice, is doing something wrong, or is really making mistakes with your case, then you can ask to have a new one appointed. This is called "good cause," and is generally the standard the court would use to make a change.
The alternative is to get some money together and hire an attorney of your own choice.
You have no dog in the fight so you cannot ask the court for a new Court Appointed lawyer. You can, with your boyfriend's approval, hire a private attorney to represent him.
If he wants a new lawyer he has to file a Motion and request a new attorney. He will generally need a reason to accomplish what he wants but the decision is his.
