Legal Aid Family Lawyers
Legal disputes can quickly become expensive, causing many to miss out on receiving the justice they deserve. In these instances, legal aid is designed to help you find the right legal solution to your problems, without worrying about the financial toll.
Providing access to experienced legal aid family lawyers, legal aid ensures that you are not left unrepresented in the court room. Qualifying for legal aid is dependent upon your individual circumstances and is typically provided following means and merits testing.

Do I qualify for legal aid?
Each legal aid application is assessed on a case-by-case basis, and in order to quality you will need to meet a series of key criteria. Your eligibility will be dependent on a series of important factors, most prominently both the type of case and your own financial circumstances.
Your financial situation will not be assessed in cases which relate to children in care or child abduction proceedings, but in all instances it is likely you will have to submit evidence which prove the necessity of your case.
Legal aid does not always cover all of your costs. On some occasions, you may be required to pay some of the costs back or pay them upfront, however access to legal aid is still sure to help ease the financial burden.
