COVID-19: How we can help
Our services during COVID-19
We previously made changes to the way we provided our services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown announced on 31 January 2021.
Our services are now operating as normal. This includes a range of in-person services as well as services by phone, video, or through the Infochat service on this website. Our in-person services are subject to requirements of public health guidelines about social distancing and contact tracing registers, and you may be asked health-related screening questions before having an appointment.
The Get Legal Help page provides information about our current services.
Any future changes to our service delivery because of the pandemic will be detailed here.
Legal information related to COVID-19
We have created a range of legal information to help you understand the different rules and legal processes that are in place during COVID-19 and to offer guidance in responding to particular legal issues that have arisen at this time.
Courts and other organisations
Courts, tribunals and various legal organisations across Western Australia are taking active steps to manage the risk of COVID-19. This means there are changes to the way in which they operate and provide services.
If you are due to attend a court, tribunal or other legal organisation, check their current procedures by visiting their website or telephoning before you attend. If you are unwell or need to self-isolate, telephone the relevant court or tribunal and follow the directions you are given.
If you had a matter listed in a court or tribunal in Perth or the south-west region of WA between 1 - 5 February 2021, you should check the website of the relevant court, or contact the registry to see how your matter has been affected.
