Hi, I'm Lea
Do you mean can she make a claim for legal aid if you give an undertaking?
She can apply for legal aid without an undertaking in place - so long as she has other evidence of suffering domestic abuse. An undertaking can also be used in support.
If you ask her to give a cross undertaking - i.e. y ou both give undertakings not to contact each other etc., then she won't be able to apply for legal aid.
The judge will decide how long either an undertaking or an NMO will last.
You said the hearing was next week, you need to write a statement, if you have not already done so and send it to the court and the other side's solicitor, so that the court has your position before the hearing starts.
You need to open new threads if you have further new questions.
All the best.
