It is advisable to obtain legal advice before making a decision about what to do or before applying to the courts. A lawyer can help you understand your legal rights and responsibilities. They can also explain how the law applies to your case. A lawyer may also be able to help you reach an agreement without going to court. The Family Relationship Advice Line (FRAL) can help you with free legal advice and information about services available to assist anybody with family relationship issues including information relating to family law proceedings – please call 1800 050 321 (+61 7 3423 6878 if you are overseas). You should notify FRAL that you are seeking legal advice (also advise if your request is urgent). FRAL will organise a lawyer to contact you and provide a time frame. Alternatively you can obtain free legal advice from a Legal Aid advice line or a community legal centre in your state or territory. Court staff cannot give you legal advice.
