I am getting universal credit would I get legal aid for mediation and court fees if it went to court to sort finances?

No, you can't get legal aid for this.

Legal aid for divorce and finances is now only available in very specific circumstances where there is a a history of domestic abuse as well as financial need. www.gov.uk/legal-aid

People on low incomes can be eligible for fee remission for court fees. Check
www.gov.uk/get-help-with-court-fees

Your mediator would be able to tell you if you qualify for reduced fees for mediation.
