Victoria Legal Aid Handbook for Lawyers

Victoria Legal Aid increased all professional fees by two percent from 1 January 2022.

The fee increase applies to all existing grants of legal assistance where the matter has not been finalised and new grants made on or after that date. All appearances and additional preparation completed prior to the changes attract the old fees.

Fees prior to 1 January 2022

For fees payable in Commonwealth family law matters prior to this date, see Archived versions of the Handbook.
