What Areas of Family Law Can You Still Get Legal Aid?

Legal aid is available in many aspects of family law. This includes, but is not limited to, cases related to domestic violence or abuse, child protection issues, family mediation, and cases that concern the welfare of children. We provide advice, guidance, and robust legal representation to ensure your rights and interests are protected.

Can I Get Legal Aid?

Yes, you can. To be eligible for legal aid, you typically must have an annual household income at or below 125% of the federal poverty guidelines. However, the exact income threshold can vary depending on the specific circumstances of your case and the nature of the legal help required.

What is the Application Process for Legal Aid?

The application process for legal aid involves a detailed assessment of your financial situation and the merits of your case. This includes an evaluation of your income, assets, and expenses, as well as the potential outcomes of your case. Rest assured, our dedicated team at Astraea Linskills will guide you through the entire process, providing support and clarity every step of the way.

What Happens If You Can’t Afford Legal Aid?

Additionally, some lawyers volunteer their time to provide brief answers to legal questions through pro bono programs. At Astraea Linskills, we’re committed to ensuring you receive the legal help you need, regardless of your financial situation.
