The Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) today launched an online service for minor civil disputes, making it easier for people to keep track of their matters.
QCAT revealed that the online service would allow parties involved in matters to see when their hearings were scheduled, what documents had been lodged, and what decisions have been made.
The tribunal currently deals with almost 24,000 minor civil disputes a year, including minor debt matters, neighbourhood fence issues, and consumer and trader disputes.
“The service is part of QCAT’s ongoing mission to make access to justice easier for all Queenslanders, especially in these uncertain times,’’ a QCAT statement said. “This service will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“From its inception, QCAT has strived to increase access to justice for Queenslanders and enhance the efficiency and quality of civil and administrative decision making, and this service is another step in that journey.”
The online service is available at qcat.qld.gov.au/mcdcasestatus.
