Right to counsel
While a state may have many statutes, court decisions, or court rules governing appointment of counsel for a particular subject area, a "Key Development" is a statute/decision/rule that prevails over the others (example: a state high court decision finding a categorical right to counsel in guardianships cases takes precedence over a statute saying appointment in guardianship cases is discretionary).
Legislation, Termination of Parental Rights (State) - Birth Parents
Indigent parents have a right to counsel in a non-consensual guardianship action brought by the state to terminate parental rights. Md. Code Ann. Fam. Law § 5-323(b); Md. Code Ann., Crim. Proc. § 16-204(b)(1)(vi). See also Md. Code Ann., Fam. Law § 5-1405 (where state seeks to terminate parental rights due to nonconsensual sexual conduct that resulted in child, parent is entitled to appointed counsel if indigent).
If "yes", the established right to counsel or discretionary appointment of counsel is limited in some way, including any of: the only authority is a lower/intermediate court decision or a city council, not a high court or state legislature; there has been a subsequent case that has cast doubt; a statute is ambiguous; or the right or discretionary appointment is not for all types of individuals or proceedings within that category.
