Get help FAQs When will I know if you can help me? You should receive confirmation that we have received your referral within a week of completing our online form. Your form will be passed to the relevant Kids in Need of Defense UK hub where your case will be assessed for suitability. You will be contacted by a supervising lawyer at that point and your case will be placed on a waiting list. Our hubs often have long waiting lists, which means that we may not be able to place you with a pro bono lawyer for several months. If this is the case, the supervising lawyer will let you know.
