Legal aide how come persons that own property can claim civil matters

Attorney-General did not have the information requested.

Dear Attorney-General,

Our neighbours Antonio and Helen Belcastro have been funded by CLC in Shepparton against a IVO extension placed by my husband and I. Even though we could dispute every claim they made with documentation, after spending $20,000.00 we opted to settle at an IVO against all parties (didn't bother us as we were never ever going to get any where near them). I need to know why CLC were funded to support legal representation. These people own a double story home, 50acres of land, 2 tractors, 2 motor vehicles and a water right. I'm asking why are these people entitled to my tax paying money??

Yours faithfully,

Lisa Fazzo
