Product description

Family Law Policy in New Zealand considers family law as a whole, from the definitions of ‘family’, through to context, goals, aspirations and judicial outcomes.

Since the 4th edition was published in 2013, family law has undergone significant legislative change. Included in this edition is commentary on the changes recommended by the independent panel on family justice and the Law Commission on relationship property reform. As well as discussion of the Family Violence Act 2018, Child Poverty Reduction Act 2018 and amendments to the Oranga Tamariki Act 1989.

The leading family law commentators in New Zealand have again provided insightful and authoritative essays, suitable for use in policy, study and practice.
