Governments or their appointed officials make decisions which affect us every day. But what can you do when the decision is wrong? Administrative review is the process by which incorrect government decisions can be challenged, altered or changed. We need to know: • Which department, organisation or government has made the original unfavourable decision. • As much information as possible about why the decision was made and about why the decision is wrong. • What steps (if any) have been taken since the original unfavourable decision was made. • If any deadlines are approaching or have passed. We will then determine which process, Tribunal for example the New South Wales Civil and Administrative Tribunal (NCAT) or Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) or Court, for example the NSW South Wales Supreme Court or Federal Court of Australia is the “next step” and assist you get things moving. There are important time limits in administrative review, so it is vital that you contact us as soon as possible!
