Do I have to make a contribution for my Legal Aid?

A person to whom a Legal Aid Certificate is granted - an 'assisted person' - may, in certain circumstances, be required to make a contribution towards the sums payable out of The Legal Aid Fund on his behalf. If, however, the assisted person's disposable income is less than $10,000.00 a year and his disposable capital is less than $10,000.00, no such contribution is required. If the Committee decides that a contribution is payable, the Committee may direct that the contribution is paid forthwith or by installments.
