How does Legal Aid NSW help?

Legal Aid for court costs

ALS does not have funding to cover court filing fees, service agents, barristers and expert fees.

When running a court case we help you apply for Legal Aid to cover these costs. If Legal Aid will cover the costs, ALS will represent you in the matter. If you are not eligible for Legal Aid, fall outside their means test and are also still on a low income, ALS may still be able to represent you. However this is conditional on you paying for any court fees, service agents, barristers and expert fees.
