Free Patient Legal Service

We collaborate with Inner Melbourne Community Legal to provide a free legal service for patients

Our free patient legal service provides advice and assistance with a range of issues including: 

  • Family Law 

  • Family Violence and intervention orders

  • Fines and Infringements 

  • Housing problems

  • Victims of Crime 

  • Criminal Law 

This service can make referrals with a range of other legal issues including work and employment. IMCL can also arrange referral to a financial counsellor for assistance in responding to unpaid debts and bills. 

Note that IMCL cannot help with Wills and Power of Attorneys. Please contact social work for more information about accessing assistance with this.  

IMCL lawyers are on site at Peter Mac’s Melbourne campus fortnightly on Friday mornings from 9.30am to 12.30pm. They can also arrange phone appointments.
