Legal Aid for Family Law
Recent changes made by the Government have reduced the number of areas of family law in which legal aid is available.
Please contact us to see if you may be eligible for legal aid for your particular case.
Legal aid for family law is available in the following areas:
- Family mediation
- To protect a child who is at risk of abuse
- If you are a victim of domestic abuse, or are at risk of being abused. You may be able to receive legal aid for advice on your rights to stay in your home as well as matters such as divorce, children and finances. (Domestic abuse can mean violence, physical, sexual, financial, emotional or psychological abuse).
- For family court proceedings if you are a child
- When the local authority is taking court proceedings to try and take your child into care
Please contact us for more information. If you are not eligible for legal aid we may still be able to help you.
