Eligability for Legal Aid
« on: Mar 10, 2020, 05:39:13 PM »
We are on a low income so cannot afford to pay for legal advice.
We are not on any benefits, but the joint household income falls below the maximum income to qualify for legal aid.
When i fill in the Gov.UK Eligibility calculator it keeps saying we do not qualify!!
I assume this is because we have two properties and assumes we have equity.
Both properties beneficial interest is owned by the IP for the creditors as we are joint bankrupts so why is this BI attributed to us therefore making us ineligible for Legal Aid?
