Civil Legal Aid

Civil legal aid is a scheme making the service of solicitors and barristers available to people of limited means at very little cost. The service includes anything from writing a solicitors letter to representing you in court.

How Can It Help Me?

If you need to talk to a solicitor about a legal separation, maintenance, barring orders, custody of children, etc..

How Do You Qualify For Civil Legal Aid

If you are on social welfare, you will qualify. If you are working it will depend on your "disposable income." That is what money you have left over after certain allowances have been taken out i.e. dependants, rent, mortgage, hire purchase repayments, work travelling expenses, etc.

How Much Will It Cost

A basic legal advice session will cost E10, for any further matters there is a means test.

In cases of severe hardship it can be free.
