Legal Aid may be available to you to fund your legal proceedings if you meet the financial eligibility threshold. Generally if you are in rescript of means tested state benefits or you are on a low income legal aid will be available to you. In certain types of cases, the grant of legal aid will also be subject to a ‘merits test’ whereby the Legal Services Agency will have to be satisfied that your case has a good prospect of success. Contact our experienced team of solicitors at Larkin Cassidy to discuss further.
You may be entitled to Legal aid depending on your financial circumstances if in receipt of certain state benefits for example Universal credit, Job seekers allowance, income support or Employment support allowance or if your income is below a certain level you be entitled to free legal aid for your case.
