Check if you can get Legal Aid

Legal aid can help pay for legal advice. 

You will be asked general questions about your legal problem and your income and savings. You will be told where you can get legal advice. 

Before you start 

You can only check for non-criminal (‘civil’) cases. If you have been charged with a crime, ask your solicitor or barrister if you are able to get criminal legal aid. 

You will only get guidance on whether or not you can get legal aid - you will not get a final decision until you speak to an adviser.
