Are you eligible for Legal Aid?

Are you in receipt of certain benefits? If so, in very limited circumstances, subject to the nature of your case and your capital assets you may be eligible for Legal Aid if you are in receipt of one or more of the following:

  • Income Support
  • Guaranteed State Pension
  • Income Based Job Seekers Allowance
  • Income Based Employment Support Allowance

If you wish to be assessed at your fixed fee appointment please bring up to date evidence of the following to your appointment:

  • All income
  • Any new partner´s income
  • Housing Costs
  • Tax & National Insurance Payments
  • Childcare costs
  • Maintenance payments you make

We cannot assess you for Legal Aid unless you are able to produce evidence that is acceptable to the Legal Aid Agency. If you do not provide this evidence, your applications could be delayed.

If you earn £2657 gross or over per month unfortunately you will not be eligible for Public Funding. You can find guidance on legal aid here
