Just wondering im filing for divorce in january and im guessing my divorce wont be through before april but how would it affect me if i need legal aid to continue my divorce as ex will delay? will i still continue to get for my case or will i have to pay from april?
No new applications from April unless you're a domestic violence victim. So either no advice or you pay for it. Existing cases will continue to be funded, but if you need to move from Legal Help to a certificate then you're out of luck.
Legal help is the form you sign when you first see the solicitor, which covers basic paperwork incl getting a divorce. For going to court over money, children or injunction you need a legal aid certificate.
Hi - lurking on this thread and interested in understanding more - Collaborate does this mean that there will be no legal aid for custody or child access after April other than if you already have a legal aid certificate?
How long does legal aid last? My partner went to solicitors for child access in october the solicitor sent the mediation letter out but his x came to an agreement before thy attended mediation however shes gone back on it now. Will the legal aid he had before still be active and how long for? Thanks
