One application for a certificate per case

Although the system allows you to make multiple applications for certificates, in practice you should only make one application for a legal aid certificate per case.

Where the proceedings on the certificate need to be amended (e.g. to substitute divorce for judicial separation, or to defend cross-proceedings) then the application for this should be made by way of submission for amended legal aid certificate.

Where an applicant subsequently makes a fresh application for legal services in relation to new proceedings, the correct approach is to create a new case on EOS under that applicant.
