What happens next?

A member of the LGBTIQ Legal Service team will contact you for more information. This will take place during business hours. We will ask you for personal details and more information about your legal issue including, where relevant, details of other people involved. This information is used to determine if you are eligible for our services and how we can best assist you.

If we cannot help you, we will try and provide you with the contact details of another service that may be able to help.

Legal advice appointments

Appointments for legal advice are currently over the phone. You may be asked to email relevant documents to us before your appointment.

If you need an interpreter, please let us know and we will book an appointment with a telephone interpreter or arrange for an AUSLAN interpreter to attend your appointment.

Legal representation

Ongoing legal representation (casework) is decided on a case-by-case basis. As a small non-profit organisation, we are unable to take on all matters.

All appointments are free

All appointments with the LGBTIQ Legal Service are free, and we will never ask you for legal fees.

Privacy

We understand that privacy and confidentiality can be particularly important for members of the LGBTIQ community. Your personal information is stored securely and will not be shared with any other individual, entity or service outside of St Kilda Legal Service without your consent. As a legal service, we must not disclose confidential information unless it is to prevent immediate physical harm to a person or to prevent a serious criminal offence.
