What is it?

The Women’s Legal Centre is a community legal centre for women in Canberra and the surrounding area. The Centre is run by women and aims to improve women’s access to justice. The Centre advises on a wide range of legal problems such as divorce and separation; disputes over children; property settlement; domestic violence; child support; going to court; discrimination; unfair dismissal; other employment rights; and compensation for criminal injuries.
If you need more assistance than the Women’s Legal Centre can provide, or if your problem is outside the Women’s Legal Centre’s area of expertise, they will refer you to appropriate lawyers and other support services.

Who is eligible?

All women residing in the ACT and region.

Who runs it?

Women’s Legal Centre (ACT & Region) Inc.

How do I apply?

Legal advice is only available via telephone. This is not a drop-in service. Unless you have made an appointment, there is unlikely to be a lawyer able to see you.
In most cases initial advice can be given by telephone. If necessary an appointment to see a lawyer is then made. Reasons for appointments include wanting a support person with you, needing help to fill in a form and having questions about documents.
Appointments are available Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm and every Tuesday evening between 5.30pm and 7pm.
