To provide this service, a lawyer must hold a Family Legal Advice Service approval. Lawyers who hold a supervised provider approval for family legal aid can also assist in providing the Family Legal Advice Service.
We are making some changes to RMS, which will go live on 1 December. The changes will not have any significant impact on FLAS providers – there will mainly be a few general usability improvements and a couple of new fields that you will need to fill in for reporting purposes. You can see a list of the changes here [PDF, 350 KB].
