Thank you for your question.
It is possible for both parties in a case to get legal aid - if they can both obtain domestic violence evidence.
I note that you partner considers that it was actually him that was the vicitm of domestic violence.
Domestic Violence has a wide definition.If your son has suffered physical, emotional or financial abuse in the last two years and if you can get evidence and he also qualifies on means then he may be able to get legal aid and a solicitor to help. Please see this link - in particular the GP letter - if her GP is satisfied that he is suffering from a condition such as stress as a result of his ex's behaviour and he completes the template letter - then he should take this to a Legal Aid Solicitor for a financial assessment.https://www.gov.uk/legal-aid/domestic-abuse-or-violenceKind RegardsPlease remember to rate positively.

It's all very volatile she has stoped access to his son that is why we are going to court sometimes it's ok other times it'd not good
