About Community Legal Centres (CLCs)
Community legal centres (often called ‘CLCs’) are independent community organisations that provide free legal services to the public.
They focus on helping clients who face economic and social disadvantage and who are ineligible for legal aid and cannot afford a private lawyer.
Community legal centres can provide free legal information, initial advice and in some cases ongoing assistance.
What to do
Collect your fines together
- Group your fines together by stage (infringement, notice of final demand, warrant). You can use the colours of the notices to help you
- or organise them by due date: put the most urgent on the top of the pile
- You can also get a summary of most of your fines from Fines Victoria
Collect supporting information
If you have other information that proves that you shouldn’t have got some of your fines, collect that too. It may be things like:
- Proof that you weren’t the driver of your car when the fine was issued
- A doctor’s letter proving that you have a special circumstance than means you shouldn’t have got the fine
- A letter from a social worker explaining what your situation is
- Bank statements or evidence of your income
- Other evidence that means you can’t pay the fine
