Other matters

In addition to court proceedings, legal aid covers also other legal services. Such services include legal advice, settlement negotiations with an opposing party, inventories of decedent’s estates, assistance in asset distributions and estate distributions, drafting of documents and filing of appeals and complaints.

These other legal services are provided as legal aid only by Public Legal Aid Attorneys, not by private attorneys.

In matters pending abroad, legal aid covers the provision of legal advice.
