What is it?
With funding from the Department of Social Services, Women’s Legal Service Qld (WLSQ) is participating in a pilot program supporting women on Temporary Visas who are experiencing domestic and family violence. We have commenced a partnership with the Refugee and Immigration Legal Service (RAILS) to provide family law and immigration legal support for clients that are eligible for the pilot.
Who can we help?
Women who hold a temporary visa (including a bridging visa or no visa), are experiencing domestic and family violence and are financially disadvantaged.
How we can help?
Under this pilot, WLSQ and RAILS can offer the following assistance:
- Family Law, Domestic Violence and Child Protection advice;
- Immigration Advice;
- In some circumstances, ongoing casework and representation, including court, tribunal or Department of Immigration representation;
- Provide information and referrals to support services to address our client’s complex needs;
- Providing Community Legal Education.
