“New Zealand Family Law and International Law – A Comment With Some Questions”

Kenneth J Keith, 2016

The author explores the importance of both private and public international law in New Zealand family law. The author begins by outlining the contexts in which private international law issues can arise, and how the conflict of laws has historically dealt with such cases. The author notes New Zealand’s membership of the Hague Conference on Private International Law and signing of Hague and non-Hague family law treaties, discussing the extent to which these treaties have been implemented in national law by Parliament and the courts. The author concludes by commenting on some family law conventions to which New Zealand is not a party, and signals future challenges for the relationship between family law and international law.
