Legal Aid Board launches legal and mediation information helpline
The Legal Aid Board has established a nationwide legal and mediation information helpline in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The helpline, at 1890 615 200, provides information to callers on civil legal aid and family mediation services and basic legal information.
Family law solicitor Keith Walsh welcomed the announcement, adding: “This initiative from the Legal Aid Board is timely and will be of great benefit to the very many people who have questions about child access, separation and divorce during the COVID-19 crisis.
“It will make a real difference. Well done to the Legal Aid Board, led by its chair Philip O’Leary and CEO John McDaid.”
