Can you receive Legal Aid for your break-up?
You may be entitled to Legal Aid for your divorce or dissolution of your civil partnership. You will need to find a lawyer who takes on Legal Aid clients, as not all family lawyers do. Take advice from legal professionals and domestic abuse charities; keep yourself and your family safe in this situation. Take a look in our resources area for Domestic Abuse Charities.
Speak to your GP and don’t be afraid to contact the police for further advice. Taking advice or calling the police doesn’t start a process whereby your spouse will get wind of what’s going on. It is well recognised that domestic abuse is a very delicate matter which has to be dealt with safely.

Collate your evidence and speak to an expert
You might be able to get legal aid if you have evidence that you or your children have been victims of domestic abuse or violence and you cannot afford to pay legal costs.
Remember that you do not have to get evidence before talking to a legal aid solicitor or Civil Legal Advice (CLA), but they’ll need to see it before deciding whether you can get legal aid. You will also need to provide evidence of your income and may need to be in receipt of some kind of benefit such as Universal Credit.
If you are receiving Jobseekers Allowance – make your advisor aware of your situation as they should be more lenient with Domestic Abuse Victims, There is help available around looking for work and housing benefit- See this guide on the government website
From Gov.UK – What counts as domestic abuse for legal aid
You or your children must have been victims of either:
– domestic abuse or violence
– financial control, for example being stopped from accessing a joint bank account, having benefits paid into your partners account, being given an “allowance”.
– You’ll usually need to show that you or your children were at risk of harm from an ex-partner.
You can ask for evidence from:
– the courts
– the police
– a multi-agency risk assessment conference (MARAC)
– social services
– a health professional, for example a doctor, nurse, midwife, psychologist or health visitor
– a refuge manager
– a domestic violence support service
– your bank, for example credit card accounts, loan documents and statements
– your employer, or education or training provider
– the provider of any benefits you’ve received

Sarah Woodward – Divorce Coach for Berkshire
I support women through the emotional turmoil and practical challenges of a breakup.
It is a really good idea to take a look your finances when you are going through a life-changing situation. Have you thought about your Will? If you are going through a separation or divorce you need to consider the provisions you have made for your loved ones. Should anything happen to you before your divorce is finalised, your “ex” could inherit as if you were married, as legally, you still are…. it’s worth thinking about.
Matt Angell – Creative Lifestyle Planning
I am very different to your normal financial adviser and a committee member of Resolution group.
The loss of a loved one can come as a shock, or maybe it was expected and to some extent, planned. Either way, there are many implications and dealing with legal issues can send even the most mentally stable person into a tailspin. Having these issues to deal with in the days following a bereavement is particularly difficult. Although coping mechanisms can, to some extent “kick-in” and adrenaline comes into play, legal terminology and procedure can be difficult to grasp because the brain’s “bandwidth” is reaching its capacity of information.
