Legal help, legal aid & public funding

We can help you to apply for Legal Aid if you are eligible.

Legal aid is always available for cases involving social workers and is often not means tested.  It may be available for victims of domestic abuse (subject to evidence of this and means testing). The definition of domestic abuse includes emotional abuse and financial control.

Legal aid could also be available where a child has been neglected or deemed at risk of abuse (subject to means) for any family law case.

To find out if your case is eligible for Legal Aid ring for an assessment by our assessment team on 01271 314 904.
