    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.

  • Who is entitled to legal aid?

    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.
