Submission to Family Court Bill

December 19, 2012 at 12:46 PM

Submissions on the Family Court Proceedings Reform Bill are due 13 February 2013.

Because of the tight timeframe we have decided to focus on the aspects of the Bill that impact families affected by family violence and make suggestions for further changes needed to support the Family Court to have more robust and effective responses to family violence victims, perpetrators, and their children.

For full details of our plan, a timeline for building the submission, suggested readings and contacts, and other information see our submission webpage.

In January we will be holding two consultation meetings at the Community Waitakere Resource Centre on:

Tuesday 22 Jan, 10-12noon: to discuss changes in the Bill affecting Court responses to family violence

Thursday 31st January 10-12noon: to discuss what other changes are needed for the Family Court to better respond to family violence
