Legal aid eligibility calculator

Use the Legal Aid Calculator to see if you are eligible for legal aid.

The legal aid calculator allows you to find out if you could get legal aid for a civil case.

You will be asked a series of questions about your legal problem and financial situation. For reasons of data protection, none of the information entered into the calculator is saved, so it is completely confidential and anonymous.

You can print out the results at the end for your own records.

The calculator's results do not guarantee that you will receive legal aid but will act as a guide. To get the most accurate results you may need to have certain personal documents to hand.

Please see Calculator Help for further information.

If you receive benefits from the National Asylum Support Service (NASS), special rules may apply to you. To find out if they do, you should contact a legal adviser. You can find an adviser by searching our Directory, which has details of all solicitors and legal advisers in England and Wales who have the Community Legal Service Quality Mark.
