Someone else getting a grant of legal aid

We apply a number of rules to assess a person's eligibility for legal aid. For example having a job and a car does not automatically mean you will not get a grant. Before you write to us you may want to look at the 'means test indicator' and case studies on our website for more detailed information about what is needed to qualify for aid.

We always look closely at information people send us to make sure that grants go to people who are eligible.

However, if you write to us about another person's dealings with Legal Aid NSW the law stops us from giving you any information about the other person. We cannot even confirm if the person is, or is not, getting a grant of legal aid.

If you want to tell us why you think another person is not eligible for a grant of legal aid you can fill out the online form.
