Diversion is a short-term confidential program that provides the client with an opportunity to resolve a referred offense outside of court. Participation in the program is voluntary and upon successful completion, no criminal charges will be filed. If referred to the program, the client will meet with department staff to review the offense and the standard diversion terms. If participation in the program is appropriate, individual terms will be developed for which the client will complete. Examples of terms include: payment of a program fee and/or restitution; drug testing; community service; letter of apology; classes or groups; counseling; or restorative circles or conferences.   


Community Service

This program allows clients to perform public service as a requirement for the diversion program or pursuant to a court order. Community service may consist of an individual placement or placement on a work crew.

If you are required to complete community service, or if you would like more information on creating a partnership with our program, contact Ellie Wolery at (208)392-6767, Ext 170.


Nurturing Parenting Program

Sessions are typically held in the afternoons and dinner is provided.


Project Toward No Drug Abuse (TND)

Boise County Office Hours:  The fourth Tuesday of every month from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or by appointment. Video conferencing and telephone consultations are available on other business days. (Office hours are subject to change due to holidays, training, and court assistance officer availability.)

The Court Assistance Office assists self-represented people in civil matters such as: divorce, custody, child support, paternity, name change, small claims, landlord and tenant and other civil matters.  

The office provides court-approved forms, document reviews, legal information, referrals to legal assistance, and referrals to other services. Forms can be purchased at the Elmore County Courthouse online at: 


DISCLOSURE: The Court Assistance Officer does not represent parties or any of their interests. While confidentiality practices concerning anything discussed are utilized, it is not guaranteed. The Court Assistance Officer may provide services to the opposing party/ies (other person/s involved in the same case). The Court Assistance Officer can only give information not interpretations of laws or strategies for any case. If seeking representation, a confidential consultation, or legal advice, you will have to consult with a private attorney.

The materials and assistance you receive at the Court Assistance Office are not a substitute for legal advice. The laws and court rules are complex. Following instructions and using the forms provided to you will not guarantee a favorable result. It is always advisable to talk to a lawyer about your problem before proceeding on your own.

If you cannot afford to hire an attorney to represent you, you may be able to pay a lawyer to give you advice and review your paperwork for a lesser cost. Contact the Idaho State Bar Lawyer Referral Service (208-334-4500) for the name of an attorney in your area who will provide an initial consultation for no more than $35. Even if you do not hire a lawyer to represent you throughout the proceeding, a lawyer can look over your paperwork, give you advice on how to present your evidence, and tell you whether this type of action is right for you.

PLEASE NOTE: The Court Assistance Office CANNOT provide legal advice nor can we assist with Traffic Citations, Criminal Cases, Court Continuances, or Court Records
