Self-help kits and guides

We create self-help kits and guides to help people solve their legal problem. 

Our resources are not a replacement for legal advice. If possible, we always recommend that you get legal advice about your situation before appearing or lodging any forms in court.

If you have questions about these resources, or to ask if a paper copy could be sent to you, call the Infoline or contact your nearest Legal Aid WA office.

There are also online self-help guides as part of our CORE series that cover:

  • applying for a Recovery Order from the Family Court
  • representing yourself at a Magistrates Court criminal trial

Having trouble paying your home loan?

The Mortgage Stress self-help guide can take you through the different options if you are behind in mortgage repayments.

Have you been in a car crash?

The Car Crash self-help guide can help you deal with damage to cars and property after an accident.
