At Poole Alcock, our qualified team of experienced family law solicitors are here to advise and help you determine if you are an eligible candidate for legal aid. Legal aid is a government initiative of the provision of public funds to support those who are unable to afford expert legal advice.
Legal aid contributes to paying for all or some of the costs required in your family law case. This can cover a relationship breakdown; child arrangements, child abduction and divorce.
To be entitled to legal aid, it depends on your financial position, as you must prove you can’t afford solicitor advice to become eligible for this kind of support.
Your type of case will be considered if you have met the specific criteria required to apply for legal aid. This testing approach involves providing evidence which includes: documentation to prove whether you’re on benefits, including statements; details of your income; accounts of your savings and spending, including payslips and bank statements; and you national insurance number.

I would like to thank you for all your help in this trying time for me.
Richard, Amie and Julia
Thank you so much for everything you have all done – we really do appreciate yours and your fantastic teams efforts and hard work in helping us get through this last 18 months- it has been extremely difficult at times but your support and advice has been amazing. We recommend you to everyone who asks!
Thank you so much Helen.
Honestly from the bottom of my heart I can’t thank you enough for you help and support over the last 18months – 2 years! I wouldn’t be where I am now without your help and support, even when I didn’t make right decisions you were still there to help me and never judged me.
You are an an absolute credit to Poole Alcock and I am very lucky to have had the pleasure of you representing me and my girls!
I would just like to thank you for all the help and advice that you have given me over the last few months. It was a pity we could not meet face to face ( strange times we live in ). Once again thank you and all the best for the future.
Could you please pass my thanks to Richard for being so helpful, informative and generous with his time.
He gave me a really clear picture of all the options and processes involved. His informal advice was also really invaluable – such a refreshing experience compared to poor information and advice I had been given elsewhere. From the moment I walked in the door everything lived up to your website.
Whilst being a client at Poole Alcock Solicitors Helen Stoller and Chloe Burgis, who work within the family department, have been a massive help and made me feel reassured through my difficult time and were always happy to help me. I would highly recommend using their services as they are very professional and friendly.
