Ministry warns of legal aid processing delays

10 November 2016

The Ministry of Justice says a fault in the legal aid operating system means the processing of legal aid applications, invoices and correspondence may be delayed.

"We are working to ensure that service delivery timeframes are maintained with minimal disruption as soon as possible," it says.

The ministry advises legal aid providers who have an urgent request but who have not received a response, to let their legal aid office know.
