Direct Access

Anyone can now go directly to a divorce barrister, under the "Direct Access" scheme, without having to involve a specialist solicitor. The divorce barrister's role remains essentially the same as when they are approached by a solicitor or another intermediary. Barristers can advise you on your legal status or rights. Divorce Barrister Direct not only represents in Court, but also can draft and send documents for you, dealing with all forums, including tribunals and mediations. Divorce Barrister Direct can also negotiate on your behalf and can attend round-table-meetings or investigative interviews and hearings where appropriate.

Because, under the Direct Access scheme, the barrister's role is unchanged, there remain some limitations on the types of work that a barrister can do, there are still some cases and situations in which you will need to instruct a solicitor or another intermediary as well as a barrister. However, for many cases the public access scheme allows you to go directly to the expert divorce barrister for advice, representation and drafting. Changes as of 1.4.13, now allow those entitled to Legal Aid to instruct under Direct Access where they so choose.
