Law for Lunch this week: Care of children and the changing Family Court

Law for Lunch, October 2012Every year in October, Wellington City Libraries in partnership with Community Law, hold a series of free weekly lunchtime presentations with guest speakers on a range of popular law topics — and a new series of these talks begins tomorrow, Wednesday 3 October!

Our speaker for tomorrow’s talk will be Margaret Powell, a family lawyer with Cuba Family Law. Margaret has a unique insight into access to justice issues in the Family Court and is a founding partner of Cuba Family Law.

Margaret will be covering:

  • Going to court over children: what are the steps?
  • Legal aid and the Family Court
  • New fees and increasing Family Court costs
  • What’s this about Alternative Dispute Resolution?

Come along to find out more about the Family Court and its processes and how decisions are made over children’s welfare.

Details: Come along Wednesday (October the 3rd), from 12 noon to 1pm, on the Ground Floor of the Central Library. All welcome!
