Proposed changes to the family legal aid remuneration schemes
Posted: in by Michelle Barron.
Under the current fee schemes the fixed fees and FAS fees are dependent on the level of Court. It is being proposed that following the move to the Single Family Court the fees will instead be dependent on the level of Judge hearing the case. The consultation has also raised the issue of bundle payments under FAS. The deadline for responses is midnight on Monday 25 November. Full details can be accessed here.
