Legal Support

GRG is not able to give legal advice on your case but we are able to give you general information about the law and the types of issues that are relevant for full time grandparent and whanau caregivers.  We can also refer members to the relevant agencies or information sources.

Where to get legal help

Phone or visit a Citizens’ Advice Bureau

Citizens’ Advice Bureaus around New Zealand provide information about the law. Some may be able to provide initial legal advice.

Family Court

The Family Justice website has information about dealing with personal and family disputes, including reaching agreement about how to care for your children after a relationship breakup.

There have been a number of significant changes to the way the Family Court manages disputes involving the care of children since April 2014, particularly around access to legal representation and the way in which the case is managed at the beginning of the dispute resolution process.

Phone or visit a Community Law Centre

Community law centres provide information and other legal help. Their services are particularly for people who cannot afford to pay.
