Family Justice 2014 Reforms - Review


Family Justice Consult

An Independent Panel was appointed by the Minister of Justice in August 2018, tasked with examining the effectiveness of the 2014 family justice reforms and the way in which disputes are resolved in the Family Court.

The Independent Panel wants to hear from people who have used the Family Court and related services to make arrangements for the care of children since these changes took place.

The 2014 reforms made significant changes to the family justice system including introducing Family Dispute Resolution and removing lawyers from the early stages of some Family Court proceedings.

Have Your Say!

We know that many grandparents and whanau caregivers have experiences of the Family Court process, the challenges and difficulties. 

The Panel wants to hear the experiences of grandparents and caregivers who have used the family justice system to understand what is working and what can be improved and we encourage you to take this opportunity.

The Panel is made up of Rosslyn Noonan, a former Chief Commissioner of the Human Rights Commission, and family lawyers, La-Verne King and Chris Dellabarca.

The Panel has released a public consultation paper which sets out the key issues and asks some specific questions.


Submissions Open: 5 September 2018
Submissions Close: 9 November 2018
