Chapter:7. Means Test


7.1. What is the Means Test?

The Means Test sets out principles and indicators for income-testing and asset-testing applicants for legal aid to:

The Means Test is not the sole determinant of an applicant's eligibility for legal aid. Eligibility is also determined by other factors, for example, whether or not legal aid is available for the type of matter for which aid is sought, or whether or not the applicant's case has reasonable prospects of success.

7.3. Whose means are considered when applying the Means Test?

7.3 Applicant and financially associated persons

The Means Test considers the ability of the applicant to meet their legal costs. It is applied to the income and assets of

the applicant:  

the person on whose behalf legal aid is sought, and

any financially associated person:

any person (including a relative, partner, spouse)

The means test is not applied to the income and assets of a financially associated person where:

  • it is considered that the income and/or assets of the financially associated person are not available for the use or benefit of the applicant
  • the applicant does not have access to that income or those assets
  • the financially associated person has a contrary interest in the matter for which legal aid is sought
  • disclosure of the legal problem may damage the relationship between the applicant and the financially associated person
  • if the financially associated person is the spouse or de facto spouse of the applicant, the applicant and financially associated person are separated, or
  • there are other special reasons why the means of the financially associated person should be disregarded.

7.4. Means Test structure

In order to satisfy the means test the applicant must satisfy three sub-tests.

An income contribution is assessed on the applicant's income. An assets contribution is assessed on the applicant's assets. If the income contribution and the assets contribution together exceed the allowable amount for the type of matter, the applicant does not satisfy the Means Test.

NOTE: Any reference to the means of the applicant includes, where appropriate, the means of any financially associated persons.
