Legal Aid Application Form

Important - Read this information before you start.

This legal aid form assistant will take about 10-15 minutes to complete.

This form does not register your information with the Legal Aid Commission. It provides information to Petersen Legal to speed up any application for funding.  We will not apply for Legal Aid until you have made an appointment to discuss your matter with us - just filling out this form is not enough. 

You must provide the following documents by email, or deliver to our office, or we cannot file your legal application:

1. Your bank statements for the last 3 months.

2. If you have one, a copy of your Healthcare or Pension Card.

3. If you are working, your last 2 payslips and/or recent group certificate.

If you have a married / de facto spouse or a financially related person, you must also supply their copies of these documents (i.e. your spouse's bank statements, health care card, payslips, etc.)
