New Zealand - October Hague blog

Alex Ashmore and Emma Parsons

New Zealand like so many countries post 2008 is experiencing a round of service reductions in the justice sector - austerity measures are now being felt by the Family Court process.

The net effect of this for many consumers (lawyers and clients alike) has been growing delays and an increasing breakdown in the level of communication between practitioners and Court staff.

The degree to which this is affecting New Zealand's ability to comply with its international obligations under the Hague Convention is still unclear. Hague Convention proceedings in New Zealand traditionally enjoyed something of a privileged status - being afforded hearing time urgently and a significant degree of case management from senior Court staff and judiciary alike.
