Check for Related Legal Issues

A major event can affect different aspects of a person’s life. The most immediate legal issue can sometimes overshadow other legal or social issues simmering beneath the surface. Early recognition of these issues will help a person take better control of their situation.

Fitzroy Legal Service produce Between a Rock and Hard Place - A workers manual to the legal system. This comprehensive guide takes a welfare perspective of the law and is an excellent starting point for workers in disability, youth, drug & alcohol and other community/welfare sectors who need to understand the legal system but don’t want to get bogged down by the law.

To locate a service in Queensland use the Community Services Directory at the top of this page. Please use this tool as a suggestion only outside Victoria as the laws and court systems are very different between the States.

To start, simply choose a category from this list that best captures the main legal issue or presenting problem:
