Upper limit for Minor Civil matters to be reduced

20 April 2016

The Government has introduced legislation to reduce the upper limit for Minor Civil matters in the Magistrates Court to $12,000.

The Office of Crime Statistics and Research analysed the effects of an amendment to the Magistrates Court Act 1991 made in 2012 to increase the upper limit to $25,000 and recommended the limit be reduced.
