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 […]

I THINK NOT….There is far toooo much to say, and some of you guys, have seen and said sooo much. FAMILY COURT NZ… Please do not treat all Men as violent, they are Fathers, Brothers, Sons, Uncles, Tax Payers and People.

It has been too long since I have seen my son. He went missing in action, taken down one of those black holes you guys talk about here. It wasn’t that is was okay for him to stop, it was necessary. We have sayings like cruel to be kind and for greater good, it happens […]
G’day Menzies, Anyone here have ever filed a tort against the family court / The Attorney-General for loss and damage in the supreme court? Or if any smart blokes here who ( think out of the box) want to share some knowledge have been victimized by the flawed FC ? I am planning to file […]
How long are we to endure this ridiculous double standard in our criminal justice system? Here’s a violent woman who seriously injured two other women after punching a man. She wan’t even charged for hitting the man! If a man had hit a woman in exactly the same circumstances he would certainly have been charged […]

Something seems wrong about this proposed law change that will enable people to change their birth certificates to categorize them as whatever gender they ‘identify with’. No medical or Court involvement necessary. In addition there might be a change allowing parents to describe themselves according to their preference on their child’s birth certificate as either […]
How does a group become a minority group..and how do they change the way they are treated by society, the law and the other groups that our society is made up of??? Same sex people have done it, Women are doing it, Native birds are doing it, hell everyone that can is doing it. Not […]
One would wonder, if there is a war going on here, and children are being used, whom is the protection for ?,, the child or the mother. For myself the question to ask is who is getting hurt the most???
Hopefully the readers of this website are mostly well informed about the problems of prohibition of cannabis versus the advantages of legalization and regulation of this plant. If not I’ll be happy to outline them for you. What I’d like to focus on in this post is how the current cannabis prohibition laws disproportionately criminalise […]
Professor Janice Fiamengo’s latest video exposes in her part of the world what we have frequently exposed in our part of the world: the devaluation of men and the favourable treatment of women including in the justice system. Evidence abounds, and on the very day Prof Fiamengo’s video was published there was an article in […]
TV3 The Project yesterday had a sympathy based item about how men have it so easy after separation and women need more Government supports with no strings attached.
Long serving dean of the Otago Law School Professor Mark Henaghan is stepping aside from his position and will remain at the University for the remainder of the year, while his deputy Professor Jessica Parker will fill the position.

The ‘Glitter Boobs’ story from the Gisborne ‘Rhythm and Vines’ music festival has been an international hit and our NZ Herald has published numerous articles on it, giving uncritical voice to Madeline Anello-Kitzmiller, Kiri-Ann Hatfield and Katie Ashworth and misrepresenting the events significantly. A bystander’s video recording showed Anello-Kitzmiller walking through the crowd with her […]
Occasionally I wonder if there might be some lack of unity among men in NZ, with respect to protecting their collective interests? By querying that, I am not implying that men should “fight” against women as a total group. (We would lose if we tried, due to the large amount of fraternising with the enemy.) […]
Hi there. My name is Thomas Francis Knudsen. I took a plea deal after 13 months of maintaining a not guilty plea. The straw that broke the camels back was that I ended up in Wellington prison among some unsavory characters where I was threatened with getting beaten up almost immediately upon arrival from a […]
We came across this web page with a video clip for recruiting psychologists to the Dept of Corrections. It involves only female psychologists and shows them working with all male clients. It shows two females running a group, presumably in prison, with all males. We don’t think this is ok.
Hi, I want to learn about appeals from family court. Hope it can be of service to others. Any experience or links to info welcome. Many please and in thanks of you

The Human Rights Commission mediated the settlement and according to the Men’s Summit team this was the first time the […]
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. The Interim Parenting Order states my ex is allowed supervised visits only. This is because my ex wilfully breached a trespass order and attacked me. My ex was […]
-Are you happy with the current division of property? -Will a proposal to make family violence a penalty in property division increase false accusations? -Would mental abuse also count? -Should property be divided according to who cares for the children, not 50/50? -How can the Family Court speed up decisions? -What happens if one parent […]
Our colleague Craig Jackson has joined calls from the feminist ‘Backbone Collective’ for a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Family Court. However, Craig’s concerns differ considerably from the feminists who believe the Family Court should believe everything women claim and do exactly what women prefer without question.
