Guideline changes to improve child protection legal services

On 1 October 2018, new state family law guidelines and a minor change to fees will take effect. The new guidelines will increase the legal assistance available to children, young people, parents and carers involved in child protection court matters. The changes are part of our commitment to improve child protection legal services, and implement actions we have committed to in the Child Protection Legal Aid Services Review final report.
