Special urgency situations where the client does not comply with our requests for information: potential effects

We have to assess and collect any contribution payable by your client who is receiving special urgency cover.  For this, we have to get information about their circumstances and any changes to these.

If your client has been refused legal aid, we can still ask them for information to allow us to carry out a proper means assessment.

If they do not give us the information we ask for, we can recover from your client the total amount we have paid in fees and outlays to you.

Make sure your client is aware of the implications of not providing the information we require.

If we abandon the application you can still submit your account for the urgent work done.
