Magistrates Court Minor Claims advice

Magistrates Court Minor Claims advice

There is a presumption in the Minor Claims Division (claims up to $10,000) of the Magistrates Court that the parties will not be represented by lawyers.

However, there are also certain exceptions to that presumption. Whether or not lawyers are ultimately involved, Austral Legal can also assist you with background advice about what to expect from the Court process to the likely outcomes in your matter and provide guidance or assistance with drafting your documents.

Where possible we will also provide fixed fee pricing so that you know what your legal costs will be up-front. In the first instance it is likely to be worthwhile for you to meet with us via our SmartMove initial 30-minute discounted consultation to discuss and determine the next steps in your matter.
