Services for Women

Community Law provides free, confidential legal advice to women at specialist clinics. You will be seen by a woman lawyer and greeted by women staff. Our lawyers on these sessions usually specialise in Family Law, but can provide information and advice on a range of issues.

Like all of our sessions, our Women’s sessions are whānau-friendly, and you are welcome to bring your children. We have whānau rooms with toys, books, and colouring, as well as comfortable places to breastfeed and change nappies.

Our services are expressly trans-friendly – all women are welcome at this clinic.

We can also provide ongoing Visa assistance to migrant women whose relationships have ended due to domestic violence.

If you are in an unsafe relationship or home situation, please do not hesitate to call us on 04 499 2928 and ask for urgent help outside of these session times. We can work with you to ensure your safety is upheld while you access our services. All of our services are totally private and confidential, and we are here to support you.
