Within 28 days of the original decision, an unsuccessful party can appeal the decision. Magistrates Court decisions are appealed to the District Court, District Court decisions are appealed to the Supreme Court and Supreme Court decisions are appealed to the Court of Appeal. The relevant forms are available from the court registry or website, and will require the person to identify an error of fact or law in the original decision.
An application by a debtor to appeal or set aside a judgment does not prevent the creditor enforcing the judgment in the meantime.
The debtor may make an application to stay (postpone) the enforcement of the judgment until the application to set it aside is heard (r 300 Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 1999 (Qld)).
