LEGAL AID/LEGAL PROTECTION INSURANCE

Almost everyone has home insurance that includes cover known as legal protection. Legal protection can be used for many different kinds of dispute. If you cannot use the legal protection under your home insurance, the State may grant legal aid in certain cases. You pay a legal aid fee which is fixed on the basis of your income.

Your attorney can assist you when applying for legal protection or legal aid.
