Authorisation for the other party’s contribution to the cost of the report

It may arise that the other party is not legally aided but is not in a position to contribute to the cost of the report.  In these circumstances it is open to the legally aided party to make an application for an amendment to the legal aid certificate to have the entire cost of the report/attendance authorised.  It is a matter for the Board to decide on a case by case basis whether to authorise such payment where it considers it reasonable to do so and in accordance with the Act and Regulations.
