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.
