Family court changes trialled
Some of us are very interested to hear from anybody who is involved with the Family Court mediation pilot project mentioned below, particularly on the North Shore.
A pilot project aimed at helping troubled families resolve disputes more quickly is underway in a number of family courts.
The trial gives those involved in custody, access and guardianship battles the option of using specially selected mediators.
The pilot is being carried out in Porirua, North Shore and Christchurch and will start in Hamilton shortly.
