Get help with interim FVROs

Logo for FRVO self-help guideHow can Legal Aid WA help?

Our Domestic Violence Legal Unit (DVLU) provides legal advice and assistance to women about family violence issues, including help at court and representation when applying for a Family Violence Restraining Order. 

There is a duty lawyer from our DVLU available at Perth Magistrates Court each morning. The DVLU duty lawyer can give advice and assistance to people in situations of family violence about applying for an FVRO.

A DVLU duty lawyer attends Joondalup Magistrates Court to assist FVRO applicants if an objection to the interim FVRO has been lodged with the court.

If your matter is not being heard in Perth, see if your local Legal Aid WA office provides assistance with FVRO applications, including duty lawyer services.
