COVID-19: How we can help
Our services during COVID-19
During the transition out of the lockdown ending on 2 July 2021, Legal Aid WA will continue to provide the same range of services, however, our in-person advice appointments and duty lawyer services may be provided in a different way at present. See COVID-19: Service changes for more information.
*** Please understand that changes in how our services are provided may be made with little or no notice.
For legal information or to ask about our services, you may still call the Legal Aid WA Infoline on 1300 650 579 or use the Infochat service on this website. These are available as usual from 9 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday.
If we cannot assist you, we will refer you to another agency for help.
Legal information related to COVID-19
We have created a range of legal information to help you understand the different rules and legal processes that are in place during COVID-19 and to offer guidance in responding to particular legal issues that have arisen at this time.
Courts and other organisations
Courts, tribunals and various legal organisations across Western Australia are taking active steps to manage the risk of COVID-19. This means there are changes to the way in which they operate and provide services.
If you had a matter listed in a court or tribunal in the Perth or Peel regions of WA between 29 June - 2 July 2021, you should check the website of the relevant court, or contact the registry to see how your matter has been affected.
If you are due to attend a court, tribunal or other legal organisation, check their current procedures by visiting their website or telephoning before you attend. If you are unwell or need to self-isolate, telephone the relevant court or tribunal and follow the directions you are given.
