Debts tell a story. The story of a person who worked hard and didn’t get paid. Or the story of a person who got a bill they couldn’t afford to pay – often not by choice. Whatever your situation, you have rights and you should know what they are. The laws regarding debts are a well worn path, being one of the original areas of law. Tackle the problem head on, but make sure you know the rules.

The key to resolving any dispute is knowing where you stand and then making a decision based on accurate information.
Usually the hardest part is working out where you stand so you can make a sound decision.
It doesn’t matter if its a tax issue or dispute, a commercial law or contracts issue, a business issue, family law (including divorce, custody, wills), a property dispute, an issue on employment law, insolvency, migration, asset protection or defamation. The whole wide range of laws come down to one principle: know where you stand first and then make a sound decision found that foundation.
This means working out what your rights are, who to call, or what to read. Everyone seems to be an expert and there is always someone out there who speaks with great confidence but doesn’t know what they are doing. Its hard to find the right answer or know if what you are looking at is right.
We are hoping that the information we provide on this website helps you work out where you stand, or at least puts you on the right track. Be it an issue with the ATO, the OSR (Revenue NSW or the state revenue office of any state), a commercial dispute, debt recovery dispute with a creditor or debtor, an issue with a liquidator who is probably chasing you for a payment of some kind, it doesn’t matter.
We are always happy to recommend lawyers and other professionals if you need help – tax lawyers, commercial lawyers, insolvency lawyers, family lawyers, property lawyers, wills lawyers, migration lawyers, accountants – in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth or national. We have a broad network developed over decades of collective practice.
At the end of the day, the only way to get through a situation is to know where you stand and what your options are.
