The President of the Family Division has described as “unconscionable” delays over Legal Aid funding which have held up a case concerning the removal of a child from his parents.
Last year, James Mumby accused the Government of having washed its hands in denying Legal Aid to the parents who have learning difficulties.
Mumby said it was “unthinkable” that parents should have to face a Local Authority’s application for adoption of their Son without proper representation.
Parents can be forgiven for thinking they are trapped in a system which is neither compassionate nor even humane.
It is often only due to the goodwill and charity of Solicitors working pro-bono that any assistance is secured.
Here at Ringrose Law we are one of the few firms left in Lincolnshire that can offer Legal Aid to clients. For further information contact our family team in one of our offices in Boston, Grantham, Lincoln, Sleaford, Spalding and Newark.
