During the COVID-19 situation, LAO is offering more telephone support. Anyone can use this service to get legal advice and information. It doesn’t matter what your income is

LAO has a free summary advice line that lets you talk to a lawyer for up to 20 minutes to get information and general advice about your family law matter.

This includes information about:

  • your legal options and what might happen
  • separation, divorce, custody, access, child support, or spousal support
  • the family court process and mediation

You usually have to call and give some information about your legal issue and where you live, and a lawyer will call you back.
