Family Law Legal Aid

Legal Aid – everyone deserves quality legal representation

Mason Lawyers have served on the panel of legal aid lawyers for many years. This means that we are independent lawyers that are able to work for legal aid clients.

To discuss your matter and eligibility for legal aid further, contact us on 4929 4499 for a no obligation initial telephone call.

Am I eligible for Legal Aid?

In NSW family law matters, eligibility for legal aid depends on a number of factors. These include a person’s income and assets, and also whether the type of issue that is in dispute. Legal aid is considered in the following types of matters:-

  • Parenting matters (including matters about who a child will live with, spend time with and communicate with).
  • Parenting matters (concerning location and recovery orders).
  • Mediations.
  • In some very limited situations, in property settlement matters.

At Mason Lawyers, we offer alternative funding/payment arrangements for those people that are ineligible for legal aid, but do not have ready access to money for legal fees. Depending on your circumstances, this might include an instalment arrangement or deferring payment of your legal fees until the conclusion of the matter.

Contact us today to discuss payment options.
