What if my family unit is experiencing a unique situation (for instance, I am undergoing a divorce, my child is in custody, or I have a shared parenting arrangement)? How might this affect the size of my family unit and my eligibility for legal aid?

Please call us at 1‑800‑668‑8258 to speak with a client representative who can learn more about your situation and discuss your eligibility. Your spouse may not be counted as a member of your family unit depending on the circumstances of your divorce, and your child may not be considered dependent if they are not primarily within your care (and therefore do not count as a member of your family unit). These factors will affect the size of your family unit, which in turn will affect your eligibility for legal aid.
