As a result of a recent decision by the Court of Appeal, the government has changed the eligibility criteria for victims of domestic abuse to receive legal aid.
From Monday 25 April, the time limit on certain evidence requirements will be increased from 2 years to 5 years.
Anyone who previously had difficulty obtaining legal aid because the evidence was more than two years old should take fresh legal advice, as they could now be eligible.
