Could a client receiving advice and assistance end up paying money recovered or preserved back to the Legal Aid Fund?

It is unlikely the legal aid provisions about property recovered or preserved (“clawback”) and “hardship” will ever arise in advice and assistance given in relation to the Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011.  However, if it does become relevant or if you are unsure if it would apply, you should refer to our Civil guidance on clawback or contact us.
