We have been awarded a contract by the government to provide legal aid in immigration law, family law, public law, community care, and claims against public authorities.
Legal aid is only available for a limited type of these cases and we are restricted by our capacity in the number of legal aid cases we are able to take on at any one time.
A merits and means test has to be met before you qualify for legal aid.
To carry out the merits test we will need to know something about your case and whether it has a prospect of succeeding.
To carry out the means test we will need to know about your income and savings and whether you have any other source of financial support. We will require evidence of your income and savings.
To find out if the legal issue you need our help with is available on legal aid and whether you meet the means and merits test please go to Check if you can get legal aid – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) and follow the instructions.
If you do qualify for legal aid for your issue contact us to find out if we have current capacity for a new legal aid case.
