A Legal Services Order can be made by a judge during family law proceedings to compel one of the parties to meet the other’s legal costs.
Sought in divorce or dissolution of civil partnership proceedings, Legal Services Orders are intended to place the parties on an equal legal footing, with the aim of preventing one party using their finances as a means of securing an advantage over the other.
The law relating to Legal Services Orders is complicated, and if you are facing an application by your former spouse or civil partner, or you require information about applying for an Order, it’s important to instruct a solicitor with specific expertise in this area of family law.
