What will Legel Aid not pay for?

Because Legel Aid funds are limited, Legal Aid usually will not give you a lawyer for:

•cases where you are being sued or want to sue someone

•things you could do on your own or where services are available through other agencies

•simple divorces, custom adoptions and hearings about not obeying child maintenance orders

•buying and selling houses, libel or slander, wills and matters dealing with elections

•first offence impaired driving (if no other charges), first offence careless driving and consuming liquor by a minor (if no other charges)
Note - if you feel an exemption should be made in your case, please ask in writing, for special consideration.
