Can a pensioner hire a
legal aid QLD lawyer to work for her son in a
family law trial?
No. Your son would need to apply for Legal Aid on his own behalf.
Yes further to AllForHer's comments above, your son would need to meet the eligibility requirements and pass the "means test" for Legal Aid on his own merits. Here is some further information from the website. There is a calculator online which allows you to put in estimates of your income and assets to determine whether or not you would be eligible.
