there is no money at all so not sure how she got legal aid. All I know is her legal aid certificate they sent me a copy of is for family (higher). Legal aid granted for no other reason. Could she have mislead legal aid about assets available? Is this worth me pursuing with legal aid? I know her solicitors keeps getting certificates topped up?
We had an MPS hearing that was adjourned (my fault) so a cost order was made. We then signed a consent order for interim maintenance which included a lump sum of arreas? Judge and her solicitor signed it.

Its very hard to get a legal aid certificate now, normally its because there is a history of domestic abuse/violence that is documented. I am sure otgers on here can probably state what makes you eligable to receive legal aid though not just DV.

The rules constantly change.

Hi
As stated she got the legal aid certificate prior to April 2013. She then sat on the certificate until January 2015 and then decided to use it
