Default Sometimes Legal Aid Is the Problem, Not the Solution

This article summarizes the issues of Legal Aid in Family Law quite well. I couldn't do it better so I am posting it here for you.

Sometimes Legal Aid is the Problem, Not the Solution – Slaw

Quote:
Abuse of legal aid in this way is increasingly becoming the norm in family law rather than the exception.

Some members of the judiciary could therefore be excused for being oblivious to these “all too common” dynamics, but the lawyers receiving these certificates or opposing reform should not be.
-- "Legal Aid gives you wings." - WorkingDad
