Legal Aid & Mediation


From April 2013, the availability of Public Funding or Legal Aid was significantly reduced for Family Proceedings. This means that many people now have to represent themselves in court. This can be confusing and stressful. If you qualify for financial help, this may be done in the form of a Contribution Order where you are expected to pay back some or all of your Legal Aid depending on the settlement you agree with your former partner.

Legal Aid for mediation is different.  If you qualify for Legal Aid, you do not have to pay back the help from any agreed settlement.
