Family Law


The recent legislative changes which came into force in April 2013 have had far reaching ramifications on various areas of law including family law.

 

Legal Aid is no longer available (subject to a small number of exceptions) for divorce, judicial separation, residence and contact disputes concerning children and ancillary relief i.e. disputes in connection with property, other assets and maintenance.

 

The public is now left to pay for the legal fees themselves on a private basis.
