Do you have a legal problem?
There are many types of legal problems we can help with.
- domestic and family violence
- your ex-partner or children
- if you are in trouble with the police
- if you have to go to court
- if people are not treating you fairly.
If we cannot help you then we will tell you about other people who can help.
To get legal help call our legal information line on 1300 65 11 88. You will be charged the cost of a local call.
It will cost more if you call from a mobile.
The legal information line is open Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5:00pm.
The legal information line may be busy when you call. Please wait. We will answer your call as soon as we can.
We can give you an interpreter if you need one.
If you have a hearing impairment, you can call us using the National Relay Service.
When you call us a client information officer will listen to your legal problem.
If your problem is serious, a lawyer can give you legal advice.
Our lawyers will listen to your story and explain what you can do.
You can also talk to a lawyer at our office.
Legal advice is private. We will not tell your story to anyone.
Bring letters or forms about your legal problem to your legal advice appointment.
Our lawyers are also at court to help people who have not talked to a lawyer yet. These are called duty lawyers.
We also help people to learn about the law.
