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.
