Contact us today to find out if you are eligible for Legal Aid
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.
Please submit your information and a member of the Poole Alcock team will respond to you as soon as possible. If you have a quick question, please feel free to call 0800 470 0331.
