Women’s Legal Service Tasmania provides a statewide service for women in relation to family law, separation and divorce, property settlements, family violence, child support and child protection. Women’s Legal Service Tasmania is a community legal service funded by the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department. The service operates a free and statewide service, with offices in Hobart, Burnie and Launceston.
Women’s legal service provides confidential and free legal advice and referral to women right across Tasmania through our telephone advice line. Their highly skilled legal staff are able to provide advice and referral on all legal matters including family law, family violence, civil and criminal law, as well as estate and property law. In addition to providing telephone advice, we are at times able to take on casework for clients throughout Tasmania who need representation with their legal matters.
Women’s Legal Service Tasmania is able to provide community legal education sessions and workshops throughout the Tasmanian community. We produce legal information publications such as brochures, booklets, factsheets, and websites, and strive to make the legal system more accessible and responsive to the issues affecting women through our law reform work.
