Appeals to the Circuit Court in non-family law matters

If you receive an application for legal aid to appeal of an order of the District to the Circuit Court (in a non-family law matter), the matter should be treated as a fresh application for legal aid.

If the applicant is the appellant, you should ask the solicitor to provide an opinion on the merits of appeal, including the appellant’s grounds of appeal and their prospects of success.
