Important Changes to the Legal Aid System: Family Law Affected
As of April 2013, the Government are making major changes to the legal aid system. The effect of these changes will be to remove almost all areas of Family Law from the scope of legal aid. The only exceptions are cases involving social servies with a child protection element ( i.e. Care cases) and cases involving domestic violence. It is important that applicants for legal aid are aware of this and ensure that they see a solicitor in good time prior to April 2013.
