About Us

Legal Advice We Provide

Fife Law Centre is a charity and offers a range of advice and representation for those who have difficulty accessing legal services because of mental health problems or disability, among others, or cannot afford mainstream legal services because of financial circumstances or because other solicitors are unable to deal with their problems. Unfortunately, we can only assist people who reside in Fife. We deal only with matters of Scots law.

The law centre can assist you if you have mortgage or rent arrears and are threatened by eviction, if you have complex welfare benefits issues such as an appeal to Upper Tribunal or overpayment of benefits.

Fife Law Centre can also provide assistance with adults with incapacity, child law, criminal injuries compensation, rights for refugees and migrants, persons in insecure immigration situation and other miscellaneous issues. Such work will only be taken on at the discretion of the Principal Solicitor.

If you would like the law centre to assist you please contact us by telephone or email. We aim to respond to your initial enquiry within five working days.
