Legal Aid Still Available for Mediation

Legal Aid is no longer available for legal advice and representation since April 2013 unless a client can demonstrate that they have experienced domestic abuse, forced marriage or child abduction.

However, Legal Aid for Family Mediation is available, subject to eligibility.

If you are eligible for Legal Aid for Family Mediation, and participate in the process, you may also be entitled to free legal advice and obtain a consent order through the 'Help with Family Mediation' Legal Aid scheme.

Remember that you need to attend a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting before making an application to court.
