The Legal Services Commission recently published a short guide, Law for You
It is intended to help non-English speakers learn key laws and find out about services available to assist with legal problems.
The guide is available in 10 languages which are identified as those most commonly spoken by new arrivals in SA: Arabic, Burmese, Chinese (Mandarin), Dari, English, Hindi, Persian, Swahili, Nepali and Vietnamese.
Topics include Criminal Law, Family Law, Traffic, Buying and Selling Goods and Services and Family Violence. The intent is to provide some direction when confronted by issues in these areas.
This guide is available from the Legal Services Commission or we can provide you with a copy in the required language.
At Williams Barristers and Solicitors we will ensure you are clear about the law and how it will affect you. We can also ensure that interpreters are available if this is required.
If you need legal advice from an Adelaide criminal lawyer, family lawyer or for your wills and estates, contact us on 08 84519040.
