Is a Care Leaver aged 18 entitled to Legal Aid? She has a 2 year old child and will be doing an Apprenticeship.

she needs advice re family and immigration

Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

What is the nature of the problem that she needs assistance with?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She is talking about bringing her daughter(see previousquestions) to England, possibly to be fostered or adopted, if she cannot access any financial support. She needs to know what her and her daughter's rights/options are and what support she might get.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Presumably she will need solicitor's advice, even if there are no disputes with the father of the child

I am afraid that Legal Aid is no longer available for such matters - even when there is financial eligibility

Please ask if you need further details
