If you don’t have enough income to hire a private law firm for your defense, the court can appoint a “public defender” to represent you. To be able to qualify for a public defender you’ll have to give proof and convince the judge that you do  not have the means to hire an attorney on your own. You will likely need to fill out forms about your job, income, bank accounts, assets and debts. You may also need to give the court copies of your pay stubs to prove your income level. The amount of your income level to qualify for a public defender is different for each state and even varies from one court to another.
