Can you still get Legal Aid for divorce?

The costs of getting a divorce can prevent many people from applying in the first place. In 2012, Legal Aid was a casualty of funding cuts, and this led to the removal of help for most family related disputes, including divorce and dissolution. Therefore, there is currently no Legal Aid available unless you are a victim of domestic violence, there is a risk of your child being abducted, or you are facing being made homeless. So, what can you do when you need a divorce lawyer but are not eligible for Legal Aid? This article sets out when you can claim Legal Aid, and what you can do if you don’t qualify.
