About this Legal Assistance Service:
Aboriginal Family Law Services (AFLS) is one of three Commonwealth funded organisations in Western Australia working specifically with men, women and children who have experienced family and domestic violence, and/or sexual assault.
The aims of the service encompass preventative, educational and remedial measures. We present and promote a strong and united voice against violence within Aboriginal communities, and provide a culturally secure, professional legal assistance service to victim-survivors.
AFLS may provide legal advice, casework assistance, and representation in relation to:
- Violence Restraining Orders
- Criminal Injuries Compensation
- Family law, such as child recovery orders and parenting plans
- Care and protection
AFLS engages in legal and policy reform that supports the wellbeing of victims/survivors, and promotes safer communities.
AFLS also offers Community Legal Education (CLE) with community groups, stakeholders and service providers to build working relationships and deepen community knowledge of legal issues.
AFLS is staffed by 8 lawyers, and a regional co-ordinator, community support worker and administration officer on each region. AFLS head office is located in Perth, with six regional locations in Broome, Carnarvon, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Kununurra and Port Headland.
