Domestic Violence Legal Service
The Domestic Violence Legal Service is a specialised legal service for women experiencing domestic violence. Its main objective is to inform women of their legal rights and their right to access the services that are available.
The Domestic Violence Legal Service provides a range of free and confidential legal services including:
- Casework, legal advice and advocacy
- Education and Training
- Committees and Consultations
- Policy Development and Law Reform
The Domestic Violence Legal Service is the only dedicated legal service of its kind in NSW, and consequently acts as a peak body in the area of domestic violence.
The Domestic Violence Legal Service was established in 1986 when the Women's Legal Resource Centre identified the need for a Community Legal Centre to solely assist women experiencing domestic violence.
For free confidential legal information, advice and referrals about domestic violence and Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders (ADVOs) contact the Domestic Violence Legal Advice Line.
We also provide publications and resources.
