    There are a few lawyers about that can be approached to do pro bono work.

So ask around and see if anyone in your area knows of a good lawyer who works in the feild you need help in and make an approach. If this is a Family Court matter you are able to represent yourself and apply to have a support person attend court with you. On the FC website their are instructions on "how to" go about this. There are also community law offices who offer free advice and guidance in each city, womens centres and women's refuges who can give feedback on lawyers. A
