    Bushfire Legal Aid Scheme

    Under the new Commonwealth funded Bushfire Legal Aid Scheme, small businesses and farmers with legal issues related to the 2019/2020 bushfires can apply through a private lawyer for funding to assist with their legal costs. If you are an eligible small business or primary producer, you can apply for funding of $2000 to assist you to resolve your legal matter, and up to $5000 for related expenses.

    Additional funding is available in reasonable circumstances. If you have more than one bushfire related legal problem your lawyer may receive more than one round of funding for legal services and expenses.

    For information contact your local lawyer, call the Legal Aid NSW Disaster Response Legal Service on 1800 801 529 or email disaster.response@legalaid.nsw.gov.au.

    You can also get free legal assistance for bushfire related legal issues by calling the Financial Rights Legal Centre on 1300 663 464 or by visiting Justice Connect’s Bushfire Community Support page.

    In addition, the Legal Aid NSW Disaster Response Legal Service provides free legal help for all individuals affected by a disaster. Information Flyer
