Money disputes under $150,000
If you have a money dispute of a value up to $150,000 and you haven’t been able to resolve it privately or through alternative dispute resolution, you may apply to have it resolved in the Magistrates Court. (For disputes for amounts up to $25,000, visit QCAT.)
You don’t need to have legal representation; however, you may wish to seek independent legal advice if you’re considering civil action. The other party may have legal representation.
Note: Court staff can’t give legal advice or recommend what you should do in your case. However, they can give general procedural advice. Read more on what advice we can give.
