Legal aid is available to those on a very low income and/or be on a range of benefits such as; Universal Credit. For eligible cases, not only does the eligible individual benefit from a free assessment meeting and on-going mediation sessions, but their ex-partner also receives a free assessment meeting and a free first mediation session.
