Hello, my name is*****’ve been asked to look at this for you, thank you for your patience.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
I will look over your question and come back to you shortly with a response.
It's possible, if your income goes up, that you may have repay some of the legal aid charges. It would be a payment plan over time though, rather than a demand for a ;ump sum, and it's not likely to be all of it.
This leaflet here hopefully explains more: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/860909/Client_Legal_Aid_Leaflet.pdf
You have to keep the LAA informed of any changes to your income.
I hope this assists in explaining the situation for you.
If you were no longer eligible for legal aid you would either have to represent yourself or fund a solicitor privately.
If you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
I will remain available for any follow-up questions, should you have them.
