AFLS response to COVID-19 Crisis

Aboriginal Family Law Services (“AFLS”) is continuing to provide quality legal services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander survivors of domestic, family and sexual violence in regional Western Australia amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are committed to providing ongoing legal services to our clients and community members.  However, the health and safety of our staff, clients and community continues to be our top priority.

Changes to AFLS Procedure During COVID-19

Although AFLS remains operational, we are not meeting face to face with clients or community members, at our offices or anywhere else.

In situations of emergency and only if absolutely necessary, our legal staff will attend at Court. The urgency of any Court event will be assessed by AFLS on a case by case basis.

If a case is approved as necessary for an AFLS lawyer to attend at Court, strict social distancing must be practiced.  This means everyone must keep a distance of no less than 2 meters from each other.  Only the client may attend without anyone else being present.

All AFLS offices throughout WA are closed during the pandemic.  To make contact with AFLS, please either email AFLS or phone your regional office.   Details for contact are as follows: –
