Some Family Law issues are resolved without legal representation but we always recommend that people get legal advice. A solicitor can help you by explaining the process and your options. A solicitor will also attend the court hearing with you. You can find a list of solicitors contact details on the Law Society's Website.
If you think that you cannot afford legal advice, you can contact the Legal Aid Board to see if you are eligible for legal aid. If eligible, you will have to pay a contribution. Another option is FLAC (Free Legal Advice Centres). This service offers free legal advice across the country. This service is confidential and free for all.
