Civil Law

Civil Law covers a wide range of legal issues. There is individual legislation that covers

  • Time limits
  • Which court to file in
  • Forms, procedures and damages

Our team are very experienced in all fields of civil litigation including QCAT, Magistrates Court, District Court and Supreme Court.

QCAT deals with

  • Minor debt matters of less than $25,000
  • Anti Discrimination disputes
  • Commercial and Consumer Disputes
  • Residential Tenancy Disputes
  • Adoption and Blue Card Applications
  • Dividing Fence Disputes

 

Generally parties represent themselves in QCAT.  However there are exceptions and in any case we often help parties with the preparation of their QCAT applications and supporting submissions. Our team has extensive experience and expertise in QCAT matters.

All other Civil Law QLD matters are dealt with through the usual state Court system, being Magistrates Court  (claims up to $150,000), then District Court (claims between $150,000 and $750,000), then the Supreme Court (matters over $750,000.

Whether you are required to appear or file proceedings in any of the Queensland Courts, Michelle Porcheron Lawyers has the team to guide you through the specific legislation
