Being new to Australia often means adapting to a new language but also to new laws and possible fines. It can be difficult to understand why you get fines, how to pay them or how to dispute them. There’s support for those who need it to dispute fines and understand the legal system better. If you have questions or need help regarding fines, contact Legal Aid. Each Australian state has a phone number you can call to receive free advice.
