Friday Fines Clinic

Youthlaw runs a drop-in Fines Clinic every Friday from 1-5pm 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).

Don’t opt for court thinking they won’t prosecute you ( they will) and you will likely end up with a criminal record that won’t impress employers.

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 1–5pm (no appointment needed)
