Legal Aid services changed on the First of April 2013.
Many service users and agencies will be impacted by the changes.
Free Information Session
Thursday 2nd May 2013
Nelsons Solicitors, Pennine House, 8 Stanford Street, Nottingham NG1 7BQ
9.30 am – 12.30pm.
Nelsons Solicitors, in conjunction with Nottinghamshire Domestic Violence Forum, are holding a free half day information session which will be of interest to agencies working with the public such as the Police, Social Workers, Midwives, Health Visitors, Domestic Violence Specialists and Housing Managers. The information session will cover:
• Who will qualify for Legal Aid?
• What will Legal Aid cover?
• What is Family Mediation?
• Are there any alternative funding options?
• The Local Authority and Legal Aid
• Case Studies
This is an ideal opportunity to find out what the changes will mean for you and to ask any questions.
Note: Legal Aid is still available to those going through divorce and separation, children’s matters such as contact and residence, provided the domestic violence criteria is satisfied. Cases involving injunctions, forced marriage, child abduction and care proceedings remain eligible for Legal Aid and are unaffected. Legal Aid for Mediation is still available for all children and family law disputes.
Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided.
