Depending on your circumstances you may be able to claim for Legal Aid. To get legal aid, you usually need to show you can’t afford to pay for legal costs and your problem is serious.
You’ll usually have to give details and evidence of your income, benefits, savings and property, and those of your partner.
To Qualify for Legal Aid
Yours and your partners’ combined income shouldn’t be more than £2,657 a month before tax and your combined savings or assets shouldn’t be more than £8,000.
These limits can vary in certain circumstances, for example, if you need advice about domestic abuse. You may also have to provide evidence about your problem, e.g. in a divorce case, by providing evidence that you or your child have been a victim of abuse.
Legal aid might not cover all the costs of your case you may still need to pay some of the costs.
