Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, thanks for your question. Are you in England or Wales and Was there ever any police or social services involvement regarding the abuse, if so what did they do and when was it?
Has he received a caution or conviction for any abuse? Has your GP seen you about any abuse or referred you to a domestic violence organisation?
Thanks for confirming. I was checking to see if you would be eligible for legal aid in relation to the family matter, however, for private law children and divorce matters you will only be eligible if there is domestic abuse evidence.
In relation to the family mediation, you would be entitled to legal aid for this without the need to prove domestic violence. You should therefore contact the mediator and request confirmation if they provide legal aid, and if they do not they should provide you details of legal aid mediators.
If you have any further questions regarding this please let me know. In the meantime if you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you
