New Uniform Civil Rules 2020 for legal proceedings in the Magistrates, District and Supreme Courts of South Australia commenced on 18 May 2020.

Once the trial has finished the Magistrate will decide if the debt is owed to you. Sometimes the Magistrate reserves their decision for a later date. Depending on the claim, you may be entitled to costs and interest which is added to the total debt.

If you are unhappy with the court’s decision, you can ask for a review. For more information about a minor civil review, see Review of a Minor Civil Judgment.

Judgment  :  Last Revised: Tue May 19th 2020
