The legal surgery at Derby Women’s Centre, run in partnership with Nelson’s Solicitors, has recently been expanded to include appointments under the Legal Help scheme. The appointments are available on the last Wednesday of each month. Rina, a solicitor from Nelson’s, tells us more.
We can now sign clients up to Legal Help so that a file can be opened and any appropriate work can be carried out after the initial meeting. However, clients must be eligible for Legal Help and therefore need to bring proof of income.
Legal Help provides a legal service to clients either in receipt of a passporting benefit or if on a low income, to advice and assist in relation to legal matters. We provide family law advice on matters related to divorce, injunction and contact matters concerning children.
