ATLAS is our online system for practitioners to lodge and track legal aid applications. All applications for grants of legal assistance, extensions of assistance and claims must be submitted via ATLAS.

Redrafted Commonwealth family law guidelines

On 3 July 2017, we introduced redrafted Commonwealth Family Law guidelines. This was one of the recommendations from our Family Law Legal Aid Services Review. 

We redrafted the family law guidelines to make them clearer, more consistent and easier to navigate.  The changes include:

  • minor expansions of eligibility criteria
  • a condition added to fees for the first day of trial in the Family Court 
  • an extensive glossary of key definitions has been included
  • the fee tables have been consolidated (resulting in some changes to fee numbers) 
  • hyperlinks have been added for ease of use.
