How can a Kaiārahi help you?
A Family Court Kaiārahi can help you:

  • Understand the language, processes and outcomes of Family Court proceedings
  • Where appropriate, access out-of-court services and support in the community to help you reach agreement about the care of your children
  • Remain engaged and involved in any Family Court proceedings by working to address any barriers that are preventing you from participating
  • With your agreement, connect you with other agencies and services in the community to support you as needed.

The Kaiārahi are a free service, but they do not give legal advice.
