If someone lives in Australia and has to be expatriated back to NZ for a fraud/theft case, who pays the expatriation fees?

The Police would pay the costs out of their budget. That sadly means they only chase the very high profile fraudsters, as their budget is pretty limited

Expert:  Chris The Lawyer replied 1 year ago.

But of course they can lay charges would would then lie in court until the person wanted to return to New Zealand and would then be arrested at the airport

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Could we get bailiff's in Australia to chase our NZ debt if we are successful in Court?

Expert:  Chris The Lawyer replied 1 year ago.

Yes, as New Zealand judgments can be enforced in Australia
