Legal help, legal aid and public funding
Legal aid is always available for cases involving social workers and is often not ‘means’ tested. It may also be available for victims of domestic abuse — including emotional abuse and financial control — but this is subject to evidence and ‘means’ testing.
Legal aid could also be available where a child has been neglected or deemed at risk of abuse (subject to ‘means’ testing) for any family law case.
To find out if your case is eligible for Legal Aid ring 01271 314 904 for an assessment — and if you are eligible, we can help you apply.
To see if you are financially eligible, please complete the questionnaire here.
