Lawyers snub abuse victims over low aid fees
The Family Court's top judge says some battered women are missing out on court orders to protect them from their partners because they can't find a lawyer willing to represent them on the current legal aid fees. Chief Judge Peter Boshier said the number of women applying for protection orders without a lawyer had increased in recent years to about 30 per cent. He believed this was a major reason why the proportion of applications for protection orders that were being placed "on notice" have risen since the late 1990s. “Sorry babe, I’d love to help you with the bit of biffo your husband has given you cause the dinner was cold, but I’ve got to pay the Golf fees this month and that car doesn’t come cheap, look how about buying a microwave, he won’t beat you as much if you just throw the dinner in there on high for a minute, sure I ‘feel’ for you, but ‘feelings’ don’t pay off the Gold Card now do they? Gotta cruise babe, I’m buying some art”.
I love Lawyers.
