As I know there is limit of hours. But they can ask for extension base on case.

So what's the deal? Here you only hear horror stories about Legal Aid lawyers. But when faced with one, people say it's a nightmare because you are paying, the other side is not.
100% agree
So what's the deal with Legal Lawyers? Are they really as bad as described here?
Depends what you a looking for right ) If you have a kid and he is with you Lawyer who can drag for years and built status quo probably would be good for you. And you not paing for that remeber ? )
