When applying for Income Support, you are required to seek all financial resources available including spousal support. Departmental Social Workers can assist with this, and may also help you obtain child support. In addition, Social Workers can help Income Support recipients connect to Family Justice Services (FJS) of the Department of Justice and Public Safety. FJS can provide additional assistance with other family law matters such as dispute resolution and counselling services if you are experiencing issues with custody and access.
You can access social work services by contacting the nearest office of Advanced Education, Skills and Labour in your area. For further information please contact the toll free number for your region.
