Family Legal Aid to be cut


Published: 15th November 2010 - Category: Separation and Divorce - Author: Lynne Bastow

Ken Clarke announced today no more Legal Aid for Private Family Law cases unless they involve domestic violence, forced marriage or risk of children being taken into care as reported in The Guardian.

What does this mean to individuals seeking divorce who cannot afford to instruct a solicitor?

No Legal Representation?

What does this mean to the solicitors who previously offered Legal Aid and can no longer offer the above services? Maybe they will agree to do the work at Legal Aid rates provided they get their fees from any monies gained?

Maybe all divorcing couples will be forced to Mediate unless there is Domestic Violence?

What will happen when Alternative Business Structures enter the arena next October?

Free fall in prices maybe?
