The guidance document on this page should be read in conjunction with our main guidance document entitled 'A General Guide to Civil Legal Aid'.
Our documents have been issued to provide general guidance only and you should not treat them as an authoritative statement of the law which governs the administration of civil legal aid.
We have tried to provide a good level of scenarios which will be of assistance to as many people as possible, however if you have any queries which are not answered or you feel that further guidance should be included please contact the Legal Aid Office on +44 1624 685977 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your enquiry cannot be dealt with by phone we will be more than happy to meet you in person. But please contact our office to arrange an appointment before the visit so we can ensure that an appropriate staff member is available.
The prescribed amount is made up of 4 parts:
- Part 1 – You and your family
- Part 2 – Hours of Employment
- Part 3 – Housing Costs
- Part 4 – Child Care Charges
Please refer to the downloadable document to see various examples to assist in your decision.
