Right to assistance
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, Domestic Violence - Alleged Victim
A statute provides that when a party alleging a violation of an order for protection states they are unable to afford private counsel and asks for assistance, the prosecuting attorney for the county or the attorney for the municipality must initiate and prosecute a contempt proceeding if there is probable cause to believe that the violation occurred.

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.
