The Legal Services Commissioner is seeking feedback about a new form for applying for family and civil legal aid.
There are currently five separate forms:
- civil general application – form 5
- family general application – form 6
- mental health proceedings application – form 7
- statement of financial position – form 17
- trust form.
The Legal Services Commissioner is proposing to combine these into one form. You can view the proposed new form and give feedback on the Ministry of Justice website.
Feedback closes on 11 October 2017.
The Ministry of Justice has published the updated form, submissions and decisions from the consultation and a video on how to use the new form.
