Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hi, I’m Lea and I will be assisting you with your query today.
I am very sorry to hear about your dilemma, but will do my best to provide you with advice and guidance on what to do next. Are you asking if you are eligible for legal aid? Or how to find a solicitor or barrister?
The following is useful info to assist you with the site:
Legal aid has been decimated, so it is only available in very limited circumstances for private family law cases, such as divorce. You will have had to suffer some form of abuse from your spouse to meet the initial criteria, and then you will need to meet the financial criteria as well.
You can start the process of checking your eligibility at the link below. You complete the first part and if you are eligible you will be asked to input your financial details, and will then be given a phone number to call, or be asked to leave your details so someone can call you.
In the event that you are not eligible, you can find a solicitor here: solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk
It might do - you will need to complete the online form and see what evidence you need to supply.
You're very welcome.
All the best.
