I am paying half of my salary to my x2b as SM and CM. She is getting child benefit and child tax credit. So she is earning more than me(i.e. from divorce + benefit). She is on legal aid. I dont know whether I am eligible for legal aid now? but would it be a good idea to inform LSC that I am paying half of my salary to my x2b and hence she has got earnings from divorce proceddings, so either take some % of it or altogether stop it?
Her case is merits tested so unless the application is without merit making representations to the Community Legal Fund probably won't get you anywhere.
Remember she will pay all her costs back if she recovers property or capital (not SM).
Go to a solr to check if you qualify for LAid
SM and CM are taken into account when you are means tested.
LA is very rarely granted for defended divorces -I imagine because the argument your W is running there are ethnic issues of sensitivity to be argued ( albeit unlikely to succeed) and the CLF are scared to death of refusing LA to her for that!!
