Am I Entitled to Legal Aid for Family Law?


The short answer to this is: probably.


Based on Legal Aid Agency guidelines, if the Local Authority issue care proceedings for a child then legal aid will be granted on a non-means basis for anyone who has Parental Responsibility for the child or who is a biological parent of a child.  This does not mean that others will not qualify but they will be subject to a means and merit’s assessment. A care solicitor will go through the individual requirements on a case by case basis.


If Legal Aid for Family Law is not available, then the issue of the costs will be discussed on an individual
