New Zealand leads the world in many areas – unfortunately our rate of domestic and intimate-partner violence is one of them. The new family violence legislation, being introduced in two tranches, seeks to address this appalling situation.

The changes that took effect on 3 December are already having an impact on bail, charges and even parenting orders. And just what is in store from 1 July?

These materials will provide information and insights from members of the bar and bench so that you are fully apprised in time. 

These materials will help you

  • Understand the key changes that will be introduced for both criminal and family practitioners, including information-sharing between government agencies, Police Safety Orders, Protection and Property Orders.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the practical effect of changes to the Bail Act in family violence cases.
  • Consider the impact of proceedings in different jurisdictions, criminal offending leading to appearances in the Family Violence Court and subsequent crossover applications filed in the Family Court.

Intended audience

Family and criminal lawyers as well as general practitioners who work in either one or both of these areas.
