ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR LEGAL ASSISTANCE

Our mission is to support those who have experienced gender-based violence by providing them with access to quality legal representation. However, as a non-profit organization, our resources are limited and must be allocated strategically. The following criteria are used to assess whether an individual qualifies for our assistance.

  1. Case Merit: The applicant must have a valid claim or defense related to an incident of gender-based violence. The case merit is determined based on the available evidence and the potential for legal redress.
  2. Financial Need: Our services are primarily directed towards individuals who cannot afford to hire private legal representation. To assess financial need, we consider factors such as the applicant’s income, assets, expenses, and the number of dependents they support.
  3. Lack of Alternative Legal Assistance: Our services are provided to those who lack access to alternative legal assistance. This can include those who are ineligible for government assistance or those who are unable to find suitable legal aid due to the specific nature of their case.
  4. Potential Impact: Priority is given to cases that have the potential to create a significant positive impact. This includes cases that could set legal precedents, influence policy or legislation, or raise public awareness of gender-based violence issues.

Please note that meeting all the eligibility criteria does not guarantee that we will be able to provide assistance. Case acceptance is also dependent on our current caseload and resource availability.
