Legal Services Order

    Legal Services Order

    If you are unable to pay your legal fees (either from your own assets or from borrowing) then you can apply for a Legal Services Order. Under this order, your spouse will be required to make a monthly payment to satisfy your legal fees.

    This will allow you to fight your case on a level playing field and will help you ensure that you have the best legal representation available. In making a LSO, the court will look at your circumstances and the complexity of your case. Where you have a high-value claim involving difficult points of law, the court will want to make sure that you have high-level representation and will likely order your spouse to pay for it.
