Friday Fines Clinic
Youthlaw runs a drop-in Fines Clinic every Friday from 1-4.30pm for young people under 25.
If you were 18 or over when you got your fines YOU NEED TO DEAL WITH THEM. They won’t go away and can get bigger, get you involved with police and the courts and might result in enforcement actions (such as wheel clamping of cars, cancellation of your driver licence and registration, seizure of your assets and imprisonment).
The fines system can be messy and difficult to deal with. Our Fines Clinic has a team of lawyers and paralegals who will go through your options and take on your case where you can’t do it yourself.
WHEN: Fridays 1–4.30pm (no appointment needed)
WHERE: Frontyard Youth Services
244 Flinders Street, Melbourne
ABOUT FRONTYARD – It’s home to a whole lot of services for young people. When you arrive a youth worker will talk to you to find out if you need help other than from Youthlaw.
