Rights of Women’s exceptional case funding project aims to improve access to legal advice and representation for women in England & Wales who have been victims of domestic or sexual violence or abuse.
Since 1 April 2013, legal aid has not been available in many areas of immigration law as well as much of family law unless the individual can prove they have been a victim of domestic violence with specified evidence. If an individual’s immigration or family law case is one for which legal aid is no longer generally available, they may still be able to get legal aid by applying for ‘exceptional case funding’.
