Hi all, Can any one please help? An ICL was appointed by the courts in a family law matter. The case is now over but things are far from good. If one party can't afford a private lawyer, can they go direct to the ICL with concerns relating to the children? And is the ICL appointed permanently to this case or just for that one trial? Also I have been told that because the ICL was appointed by the court under legal aid, it is not possible to apply for legal aid as that is conflict of interest. But as the case is over and if the ICL is not a permanent appointment to the case, surely I can try for legal aid ? Hope this makes sense.
