i am foreign national with no recourse to public fund on visa
i was recently charged with three counts of assault by beating to wife
am bailed until the court date at a Specialist Domestic Violence Court .
im not sure whether i qualify for legal aid
sorry i am a bit confused
it is better for me if i go privately rather than legally funded lawyer who will be doing limited work on the case due to limited fund from legal aid so i won't get a good quality defence representation.
sorry my English isn't that good
what do you mean by be represented throughout
at the police station when I got charged I was given a free solicitor she said i can get legal aid to pay for her to represent me at the hearing i am worried because she will be obliged to provide a limited service which won't be good quality defence as legal aid is paying limited.
