LEGAL AID AND FAMILY MEDIATION

 
Divorce and separation will invariably incur costs that people had not been budgeting for. Although there is no legal aid available to help with divorce costs, the exception to this is family mediation.
 
If you engage a family mediator and your financial situation qualifies you then the Legal Aid Agency will cover your costs for the mediation process and will part fund those of the other party.
 
You can check to see if you qualify for legal aid for mediation by calling 0345 345 4 345 or by completing the legal aid checker on the following link Legal Aid Checker
 
WYFMS holds a legal aid contract and can help guide you through the process involved.   For more details visit our fees page at fees and legal aid information.
