News on Family Court Proceedings Reform Bill

March 06, 2013 at 4:28 PM

Oral submissions on the Bill were heard in Auckland on Wednesday 6th March at the Quality Hotel, Parnell. 

WAVES's Manager Peter Toews and researcher Joanne Richdale spoke to the Select Committee about the concerns raised in our submission, focusing on the need to support and preserve the Family Court's protective functions around family violence and child protection issues. 

Our notes for this presentation are here.

Our presentation was aided by the Minister of Women's Affairs confirmation to the UN of New Zealand's commitment to a comprehensive approach to reducing violence against women and girls.

Family Court judges have spoken out about the Bill, see Judge says bill will put children at risk.
