Generally a Legal Aid Duty Advocate is available in Alderney on the first Thursday of every month, provided there is a Police Court sitting. Under the legal aid scheme the Advocate can provide advice and assistance on matters including preparation of wills, power of attorney on the grounds of age or mental capacity, personal bankruptcy, divorce and judicial separation, family matters and matters relating to children.
This service is free to anyone in receipt of supplementary benefit and may be free or subsidised for anyone with a low income and savings of less than £20,000 (excluding the value of the home you live in).
Normally the Advocate cannot give advice under the Legal Aid Scheme on property transfers, commercial & company matters, petty debts claims, applying for probate or appearing before a tribunal.
