Tools to support good family law practice

Let’s face it, we could all do with some help in meeting our professional obligations while managing heavy file loads.

Legally aided family law work is challenging

It’s a complex and fluid area of practice, and the needs of our target clients add another layer of complexity. Demand is high but time is short. Getting it wrong has significant consequences – both for the client and the lawyer. 

Fact #5 – Both parties in a family law dispute can get legal aid

We are providing a series of facts about family law legal aid. Fact #5 –  Both parties in a family law dispute can get legal aid.

You and your ex can get legal aid at the same time. It’s true that you can’t both use the same law firm, but you can both get legal aid – just from different sources.

Legal aid services can be provided by Victoria Legal Aid staff lawyers, private lawyers and some community legal centres, so it’s possible for both parties to have a lawyer without there being a conflict of interest.
