I have been trying to advise a friend with MS who has left his wife on how to go about having benefits paid to him. Anyway he has been told that legal aid is no longer available for people such as him as his house has quite a lot of equity in it. It made me wonder how the law has changed in relation to legal aid. Do we have to be destitute to get it and would the Disability Law Service be of any use?
Thanks for any advice.
