Is legal aid free?

As long as the Children's Legal Aid Project runs, if you are under 18 you are automatically eligible for legal aid.

If you are 18 or over and you are assessed as not being able to pay anything
for your legal services, they will be provided free.

If you 18 or over and are assessed as being able to pay something towards your legal services, you will be asked to make a contribution by making a down payment and/or monthly payments.
