Michael gets it together

Michael had been unemployed for some time, his mental health had declined and he fell behind in everything, including his rent. He owed so much and could not cope with the court formalities, so the landlord obtained a default judgement at the Magistrates Court for the money owed.  By the time of the enforcement hearing Michael had found work, but his credit history and health were still at risk.

LawRight arranged a volunteer barrister to attend the enforcement hearing and advised Michael to negotiate a repayment plan and apply to set aside the default judgement. 

Without the stress of being constantly pursued by debt collectors, Michael can now focus on maintaining his employment and health.

Michael was helped by LawRight’s Duty Barrister schemes which targeted disadvantaged litigants in 3 locations -  the Brisbane Magistrates Court debt enforcement hearings, appeals in workers compensation matters to the  Queensland Industrial Relations Commission and child protection reviews to QCAT.
