How Much Should Your Car Insurer Know About Your Driving?
Would you be willing to give up some of your privacy in exchange for discounted car insurance premiums? It’s happening in America and it may well happen in Australia too. In theory, the price of car insurance should largely depend on the likelihood that you will be involved in a car accident.
Huge Increase in Court Fees for Migrants
The Federal Circuit Court filing fee in migration matters has increased from $690 to $3,300. By way of background, when the Immigration Department makes an unfavourable visa decision, the applicant can’t just go to court. Rather, in the first instance they can only seek a review in the Administrative Appeals Tribunal (where they pay just over $1,800 in application fees).
