Family/civil Legal Aid: For non-criminal cases
The amount of your Legal Aid grant
How much family/civil Legal Aid can I get?
There are standard amounts of Legal Aid that can be granted – the amount depends on both the type of case and your Legal Aid lawyer’s level of experience.
The amount will be stated either as a certain number of hours of work or as a dollar amount.
Your lawyer can apply for more Legal Aid if it’s a special case that means they need to do more than the standard amount of work – for example, if your case involves a complicated situation or complicated legal issues.
