Legal Aid

Legal aid is automatically available for parents of a child or anyone with parental responsibility for a child where care proceedings have been issued by a Local authority or where notification has been given in writing that care proceedings are going to be issued.

In other circumstances, other family members, for example, grandparents, may be entitled to legal aid if they are eligible financially. If they want to join in the care proceedings and perhaps offer themselves as potential carers for a child, legal aid may be available to them subject to financial eligibility.

We at Martyn Prowel can advise you as to whether you are likely to be eligible and if applicable, process the application for legal aid for you.

If you are not eligible for Legal Aid we can discuss an affordable way for you to pay privately or, if applicable, arrange assisted funding with the Local Authority.”
