I want help for my Federal Court or Federal Circuit Court issue
We can assist people representing themselves in some types of cases in the Federal Court and Federal Circuit Court. Our service operates in Victoria, NSW, ACT and Tasmania.
Issues we help with include: bankruptcy, employment law and human rights.
Our service connects people with information and legal assistance through one hour appointments with lawyers. We provide task-orientated assistance in preparation for court, we don’t provide ongoing legal representation. Appointments need to be pre-booked – you can apply online. Appointments may include:
legal advice about the issue at court
assistance in preparing documents, including correspondence and court forms
advice about other options to resolve the issue
information about court orders and procedures.
Some people may be offered more than one appointment to support them throughout their case.
