The Civil Legal Aid (Procedure) (Amendment) (No 2) Regulations 2016 (SI 2016/561)

The Civil Legal Aid (Procedure) (Amendment) (No 2) Regulations 2016 were published on 4 May 2016.

These Regulations amend the Civil Legal Aid (Procedure) Regulations 2012 (SI 2012/3098) (the 'Procedure Regulations'). The Procedure Regulations make provision about the making and withdrawal of determinations that an individual qualifies for civil legal services under sections 9 and 10 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012 (c. 10).

Regulation 2(3) of this instrument inserts a new regulation 61A (determinations) into Part 7 (family mediation) of the Procedure Regulations. This provides that a determination that a person qualifies for particular civil legal services relating to family mediation may be backdated where certain criteria apply.

Regulation 3 of this instrument provides that the amendments made by regulation 2(3) do not apply to determinations that an individual qualifies for civil legal services which were provided to that individual on or before 30th May 2016.

A full impact assessment has not been produced for this instrument as no impact on the private or voluntary sector is foreseen.
