Changes to legal aid for domestic violence victims ruled 'invalid'

Victims of domestic violence will have more support in taking abusive former parters to court after the court of appeal quashed restrictions on obtaining legal aid in family court cases.

The decision comes after women’s rights campaigners argued large numbers of victims were being unlawfully blocked from legal aid, forcing many who have endured rape and beating at the hands of their partners to face their abusers in court without legal representation.
