Applying for Civil Legal Aid

All applications for Legal Aid must be submitted to the Legal Aid Office by an Advocate.

This is because the Advocate must certify that your case has reasonable legal merits. If you feel you are financially eligible to receive Legal Aid you should make contact with an Advocate, and subject to them agreeing to represent you, they will progress your Legal Aid application on your behalf.

Court proceedings in another jurisdiction

If your court proceedings are in another court jurisdiction, you should apply to the Legal Aid authority in the same jurisdiction as the Court proceedings.
