What is legally aided family mediation?

Legal Aid is provided by the government to cover the cost of receiving professional family mediation services for families who are in dispute. It is means tested which means you have to provide evidence of your current financial circumstances to prove that you are entitled to receive Legal Aid. 

If you are eligible, then Legal Aid will cover all your individual mediation costs plus the initial appointment and first mediation meeting cost for the other person if they are not eligible in their own right. 

If you are eligible for legal aid, this also gives you the ability to obtain legal aid for legal costs, up to a cost limit.
