Powis & Co are contracted to provide Family Law Legal Aid services with the Legal Aid Agency. There have been substantial cuts made to the Legal Aid Scheme over recent years, but we will offer a full Legal Aid service where possible.
Legal Aid for representation in care proceedings with Social Services and applications for domestic violence injunctions are entirely unaffected by the Government cut and remains available as before. With care proceedings and domestic violence matters in particular quite often the need for advice is urgent, so we will endeavour to fit you in for an urgent appointment if you explain this to the reception staff. If we are not able to provide immediate advice, there will be a call back service for urgent matters.
Legal Aid for resolution of children's arrangements or financial disputes is now subject to the pre-condition of satisfactory evidence being provided to justify the application, and to advise and assess you for this service we are offering a free 15 minute consultation at the office by prior arrangement. Sometimes it may be necessary to write to your G.P. for further information and we undertake this service free of charge.
