We can undertake Legal Aid for Family Mediation work. Legal Aid is provided by the Legal Aid Agency to cover the cost of our family mediation service. If you are eligible for Legal Aid, you will not have to pay us anything for the work we do for you, and our private
charges will not apply to you.

Legal Aid for family mediation cases help families agree arrangements where:

  • You are getting divorced or separating, and therefore need to sort out financial arrangements, and where you are both going to live
  • Child arrangements have broken down, and so you are not seeing your children, or arrangements are not working very well
  • Any dispute following a family breakdown that may end up in court

Family Law Mediation provide legal aid services as a member of the Compass Resolution Network Legal Aid contract.

Legal Aid for mediation is means-tested, so you have to provide evidence of your current financial circumstances to prove you are entitled to free Legal Aid.

If you are eligible, Legal Aid for mediation will cover all your individual mediation costs.

It will also cover costs of the initial appointment and first mediation meeting for the other person, if they are not eligible in their own right.

Eligibility for Legal Aid also enables you to get Legal Aid for legal costs, up to a cost limit.

You may be eligible for Legal Aid for Mediation if you are on a low income or not working.

We can help you start the assessment process before you book an appointment.

Please contact us to find out if you may be eligible for free Legal Aid.
