Legal Aid Family

Legal Aid

We are one of only a few law firms in Cornwall that has a contract with the Legal Aid Agency, to provide Legal Aid in family matters.

Legal Aid is automatically available in care proceedings.

In other areas of family law, there is a two part test to establish a client’s eligibility. Part 1 is providing evidence that you have (a) been a victim of Domestic Abuse or that (b) a child has been harmed or is at significant risk of being harmed. Part 2 is  a financial eligibility calculation.

A member of our family team will be able to determine over the telephone or at an initial consultation meeting whether you will be able to provide evidence in writing that passes Part 1 of the assessment.

If you pass Part 1 of the test, one of our experts will undertake a financial eligibility calculation on your behalf, following which they will be able to confirm if you are eligible or not.

You are reminded that each case has to be determined on its own facts.

Use this link to see if Legal Aid could be available to you.

For further information please do not hesitate to get in contact with one of our family lawyers.

If you are not eligible for Legal Aid, we can discuss costs with you.
