Hello
Thank you for your question.
I am presuming that the £600 you have been quoted is assist you in relation to the divorce proceedings.
If you want to be assessed for legal aid then you need to obtain domestic violence evidence first as legal aid is no longer available unless you have been a victim of domestic violence. Domestic Violence can be physical, emotional and / or financial abuse. It must have happened within the last 2 years. If you consider this applies then you should refer to www.justice.gov.uk for the templates that they provide so you can evidence that domestic violence has taken place.
If there has been no domestic violence there you cannot get legal aid.
Kind regards
