Initial Meeting Charges
We assist clients who are privately paying and through Legal Aid. We are contracted with the Legal Aid Agency, both for Family Law and Family Mediation.
When we meet a new client, we will first undertake an assessment for eligibility for Legal Aid if there is a reasonable possibility that the client will be eligible. If you think that you might be eligible for Legal Aid, please make sure that you let us know.
If the you are eligible for Legal Aid (for Legal Advice or for Family Mediation), then after the Legal Aid Form has been signed, and there is correct evidence of means (and in some cases risk of harm), we will then be able to proceed with a meeting under the terms of the Legal Aid Scheme. In most cases this means that our time is FREE to you, as we will be paid by the Legal Aid Agency.
