What legal issues can we help you with?

The Women's Law Centre is a community legal centre funded to provide free legal services for women of Western Australia. We provide information about legal issues and referral to support services, legal advice, casework, community legal education and law reform advocacy.

By appointment, the Women's Law Centre can assist you with:

  • Family law children's issues
  • Divorce applications
  • Family law property settlement one off advice at our twice-monthly evening legal clinic (by appointment only)
  • Domestic and family violence issues (including restraining orders)
  • Protection and care proceedings
  • Criminal injuries compensation where it relates to family and domestic violence and/or sexual assault
  • Women's human rights issues through systemic advocacy

We may also be able to assist you with other areas of law. If you are not sure whether we can assist you, please contact our office as we can provide you with an appropriate referral if we are unable to assist you.

Our ability to assist you will depend on the circumstances of your case and may be affected by our Centre's capacity at the time. We have limited appointments, and target our services to women in crisis and women facing disadvantage.

If you are in a state other than Western Australia or need a different community legal centre, check the National Association of Community Legal Centres website.
