Hi, I’m Lea and I have reviewed your query.
Have you spoken to your solicitor about legal aid?
Please bear in mind this is an email service and not a live chat so responses may not be instantaneous. I am not available for calls, but in all cases it is very likely you can be helped online.
If your solicitor believes you are not entitled to legal aid, then that is likely to be the case. She has access to all the relevant information she needs to make that assessment. It does, however, sound as though on the information you have given that you may be entitled to legal aid. Of course, legal aid is based on not just your income, but on whether you own property or not too, and have savings or other things of value.
However, if you think her assessment is wrong, you can double check for yourself here: https://www.gov.uk/check-legal-aid
Does that assist?
Do you need any further assistance on this?
Did you receive my response and was it helpful?
