A Brief Summary of Some Serious Flaws in the Domestic Violence Act

Sat 13th October 2018:

1. The DVA requires the Court to determine matters on the standard of ‘proof’ called the balance of probabilities. This may be suitable for legal decision making in some areas and perhaps for a strictly time-limited non-contact order in relationship conflict situations, but it’s inadequate and unjust when used to deprive or limit in ongoing […]

New Bill put forward by the Greens (Jan Logie MP), and it’s passing appears to be imminent: Jan Logie states “The bill would extend leave provisions to include domestic violence leave as when women leave a violent situation it can be very hard for them to juggle court, counselling, housing and the needs of their […]

Hi there. My name is Thomas Francis Knudsen. I took a plea deal after 13 months of maintaining a not guilty plea.

Please help, my daughter is being forced to unsafe and abusive visits with my ex. My daughter is 11 and lives with my partner and I full-time.

Corrections Policy Called Corrupt

Thu 31st August 2017:

A men’s group has labelled a new policy announced this week by Corrections Minister Louise Upston as “corrupt”.

Spokesman Kerry Bevin for community group The Ministry of Men’s Affairs said the policy was an abandonment of the principle of […]

CYFs more part of the problem than the solution

Video links have been used for some time now, within the Justice System, to eliminate minor appearances, for a person in custody.

Preventing adolescent relationship abuse and promoting healthy relationships

Sat 3rd June 2017:

Media have given publicity to a NZ Family Violence Clearinghouse paper recently prepared by Dr Melane Beres called “Preventing adolescent relationship abuse and promoting healthy relationships”.

Police Maintain Routine Sexism

Thu 18th May 2017:

From a correspondent; we changed place names to respect privacy: I picked up a hitch-hiker today even though he had no backpack.

Do These Texts Show Partner Abuse?

Mon 15th May 2017:

This was a weird one. The heading was ‘Husband’s shocking texts reveal reality of domestic violence‘. Well we might have missed something but the texts didn’t seem shocking and there was nothing showing domestic violence happening or having happened. Is it we or they who are irrational? Or is it a cynical production of a […]
