Sample letter to get evidence that social services said you were at risk of domestic abuse, if you're applying for legal aid.
To get a copy of the assessment that you were at risk, you should:
- fill in the sample letter as much as you can
- send it to the social services department at your local council
The assessment must show your name, and name your ex-partner as the abuser.
You can use this as evidence if you’re applying for legal aid to help you divorce or separate from an abusive partner.
