MIGRATION ACT 1958 - SECT 486E

Obligation where there is no reasonable prospect of success

             (1)  A person must not encourage another person (the litigant ) to commence or continue migration litigation in a court if:

                     (a)  the migration litigation has no reasonable prospect of success; and

                     (b)  either:

                              (i)  the person does not give proper consideration to the prospects of success of the migration litigation; or

                             (ii)  a purpose in commencing or continuing the migration litigation is unrelated to the objectives which the court process is designed to achieve.

             (2)  For the purposes of this section, migration litigation need not be:

                     (a)  hopeless; or

                     (b)  bound to fail;

for it to have no reasonable prospect of success.

             (3)  This section applies despite any obligation that the person may have to act in accordance with the instructions or wishes of the litigant.
