Hi How can I help?

 

Are you in receipt of any benefits?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
NO

Then it is very difficult to qualify for legal aid.

Do you have any other questions?

Customer: replied 6 days ago.
HAVE NOT NEEDED ANY BENEFITS TO DATE AS MY HUSBAND WAS SUPPORTING ME - HE IS CURENTLY GIVING ME £1300 A MONTH TO PAY BILLS AND SUPPORT MYSELF AND 4 CHILDREN

Unfortunately - you will need to pay for the court divorce fee which is £550.

Thank you and good luck
