News : Victims of Domestic Violence Reminded Legal Help Available
Queensland, Australia, Sept 21, 2015 -- Legal Aid Queensland have a friendly reminder for Sunshine Coast residents who are experiencing domestic or family violence.
Chief executive officer Anthony Reilly said Legal Aid Queensland helped thousands of people every year understand their legal options and access protection under law.
"We want people who are experiencing domestic and family violence to know that if they need legal advice and help getting a domestic violence order, we're just a phone call away," Mr Reilly said.
"Our lawyers can help people apply for a domestic violence protection order and, if people are eligible for a grant of legal aid, we can represent them in court for domestic violence matters.
"We can also give people free legal help for any associated family law issues such as separating from your spouse or partner, or making parenting arrangements for your children.
