Government reveals changes from 2018 Family Court review will take up to 10 years.
In 2019 a Government report prompted change to the family court system. Andrew Little said “There are incredible delays in the family court and particularly where children are concerned, that’s not fair. The children can’t sit around for 12 months waiting for their parents to sort out their issues, that’s too longer period of time for a child.”
Today in the news, I note on a lazy Sunday afternoon. RNZ reports,
The Ministry of Justice said it is implementing recommendations from an independent review in 2019 but “transformation of family justice is a five to ten year project”.
I suspect Andrew Little, a long term senior cabinet minister, will say “that is an issue for the current minister of justice.”
