Thank you for your question.
Yes, in Scotland, legal aid is available for a contact order. He has to qualify financially and have statements to the effect that it is in his daughter's best interests that he should get contact to her.
He can check out his financial eligibility at www.slab.org.uk.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
