Peninsula Community Legal Centre offers free legal advice to people who live, work or study in our community. Ongoing assistance is targeted to clients experiencing disadvantage, subject to guidelines. Our general catchment includes the municipalities of Frankston, Casey, Cardinia, Glen Eira, Kingston and Mornington Peninsula, with a larger catchment area for some programs.
We commonly help clients with these types of issues:
Family Law; children’s issues, divorce and division of property and child support
Intervention Orders; family violence and personal safety
Family Violence and related issues
Crimes Compensation (Victims of Crime)
Motor Vehicle Accidents – property damage
Tenancy (private rental only)
Social Security law
We may not be able to assist where specialist help or expertise is required. If we cannot assist we will try to provide a referral to an appropriate service. From time to time, the centre may undertake casework outside our usual criteria because of compelling public interest reasons.
No advice is offered in the following areas:
Conveyancing and Building Contracts
Loan applications / Guarantees
Landlord or Trader issues
Confidentiality and privacy is assured. Please refer to our Privacy Statement
