Family Law Legal Service

International Social Service (ISS) Australia has recognised a need in the community for a low cost Family Law Legal Service to assist those who do not qualify for Legal Aid but who cannot afford a private solicitor.

Our Family Law Legal Service provides affordable (fee-based) expert legal assistance to parents and other interested parties on a range of family law matters.

ISS Australia is a not for profit organisation and registered charity with nearly 60 years’ experience defending children’s rights and connecting families across the world. Your fees will go solely towards achieving our mission, which is helping children and families.

Our qualified lawyers can provide advice and assistance on:

  • Alternative Dispute Resolution and Negotiation
  • Parenting Disputes
  • Divorce and Separation
  • Child Relocation
  • Recovery Orders
  • Airport Watch List Orders
  • Family Violence and Intervention Orders

Through the Family Law Legal Service, qualified lawyers located in ISS Australia’s Melbourne Office provide advice and assistance to clients throughout Australia.

To access our Family Law Legal Service, or to refer a client, please call our National Helpline on 1300 657 843 (local call cost only). Alternatively you can email: legal@iss.org.au
