Women’s Legal prioritises support for people who are experiencing family violence and face other barriers to justice, including having access to money.


We cannot support people who:

  • are paid $1200 or more a week after tax from salary and/or benefits
  • have been in a relationship for 7 -10 years and have more than $500,000 equity in their family home
  • are already working with a lawyer


If you need urgent legal advice or assistance, contact Victoria Legal Aid and/or your local community legal centre.


You can also get a free 30 minute consult through the Law Institute of Victoria Referral Service.

Our office is closed

We will reopen at 9am Monday 8 January 2024.


You can contact Victoria Legal Aid for legal support or Safe Steps for family violence support. 


Our duty lawyer services will continue during this period. Please contact your local court if you need legal help at court.
