Hey gang. I wasn't sure if this was general law forum or this one because I subpoenaed the information to do with a family law matter. Apologies if wrong and mods please move. OK so during my family law matter, I have both had a lawyer funded by Legal aid (loan) at times and as present I am a SRL (trying). I subpoenaed ex's police file & couple others mid last year at a time when I had a lawyer and to save his time and my money (yes legal aid but with surety on home...so my money ) I filed all the subpoenas & served them myself. They all complied & sent information to courts. I had SAPOL sending me a bill couple of months later (huge, I might add ) that I queried with lawyer at time & as I was heading to city I said I would go & sort it. (He had a habit of reminding me how little he got from legal aid.) I went to SAPOL & talked to someone there who said they'd need something from the Legal Services Commission (LSC), I went to the LSC who told me I would need a letter from lawyer so back I went to him & "leave it with me" . I've since parted ways with lawyer - for reasons above mostly. Heard nothing more for little while until a few more SAPOL bills arrived, that honestly I disregarded the first couple as other priorities to deal with. Last one I scanned & sent to lawyer asking him to sort it. End result I now have a summons to appear at civil Magistrates Court!! Anyone know was I exempt (health care card holder) from subpoena fees? If I wasn't, should Legal Aid have funded it ? Cheers all.
