Divorce could leave poorer partners struggling in legal aid cuts

With the impending cuts on legal aid, which will see the removal of nearly all family advice, the prospect of divorcing well off partners may mean that spouses are left seriously out of pocket. This may lead to more people ending up in family courts without representation or any proper advice.

Yet again, Legal Aid reforms could mean that the objective of legal aid, to promote access to all, will not be being met. There could be serious imbalances between split partners seeking divorce where one earns substantially more than the other.

At Swain & Co we are seriously concerned about the impact this new legislation will have on cases where there is an imbalance in financial situation. In response to this, we have launched our fixed fee divorce fee. To discuss this in more detail, call our specialist family law team on 02392 492967.
