Legal Aid

Will I qualify for Legal Aid?

This is one of the most asked questions we get asked in our office. There is no immediate answer as an assessment needs to be made of your situation and your financial circumstances.

To make the application process easier, we have written some factsheets, which will help you prepare for your Legal Aid application. The factsheets tell you which documents you need and how to present them.

Read the factsheet which applies to you, as you will be given only one opportunity to present all documents needed for your application. A decision on your application will be provided within 10 working days. Do not contact Direct Mediation Services within this period.
