A Guide to representing yourself

On 1 April 2013, the Legal Aid, Sentencing and

Punishment of Offenders Act (LASPO) came into force.

It means that fewer people now have access to free

legal representation than at any time since legal aid

(state funding for legal advice and representation) was

introduced. This means that if you have a legal problem

there is now more chance that you will have to represent

yourself. This Guide is here to help.

Scrap the FAMILY JUSTICE REVIEW FINAL REPORT (EDM 2382)

Scrap the FAMILY JUSTICE REVIEW FINAL REPORT (EDM 2382)

Responsible department: Office of the Leader of the House of Commons

This e-petition is in support of Early Day Motion 2382 which states: That this House regrets that the Family Justice Review resulted in a Family Justice Panel that was not representative; notes that the response to the final report from groups campaigning for change has been almost uniformly negative; further notes that it will still cost grandparents between 5,000 and 10,000 to simply ask whether they are allowed to ask a judge if they can see their grandchildren; further notes that the remoteness from reality that plagues family court decisions will remain; and calls on the Government to establish a new panel, including representation from groups that are not financially dependent upon the family justice system, to properly review the system.
