If you believe someone is about to take your child overseas you can ask the Family Court to make an order to prevent this. This is called an Order Preventing Removal. You will also need to ask for a Border Alert so Customs can stop your child from boarding an aircraft or ship leaving New Zealand. This order can be applied for if taking the child out of New Zealand would be in breach of a parenting order, or would defeat a person’s intention to apply for day-to-day contact with the child. ‘My child has been taken overseas without my permission – what do I do’? Take action as soon as possible, report the child missing to the Police and contact the Ministry of Justice or a lawyer for help applying for the return of the child. The options for getting your child back depend on the country they have been removed to. If the country that the child has been abducted to is covered by the Hague Convention, then the following applies. The child must be under 16 years old; the child was living in New Zealand at the time he/she was taken overseas; you have the ‘rights of custody’ to the child (legal guardianship); the child was taken or kept overseas without your consent or the consent of the Court. The Court may for various reasons decide not to return the child to the country where they normally live. One of the main reasons is if the Court considers there is a grave risk that the return of the child would expose him/her to physical or psychological harm. What to do if you are asked to return a child? You may be served with an application for return of the child and given time to respond to the application. It would be advisable to talk to a lawyer and check if you are entitled to legal aid. The Citizens Advice Bureau will also be able to help guide you with this. ➤➤ Children abducted to non-Hague Convention countries: Different laws apply and you will need to talk to a specialist lawyer if you are in this situation. In the majority of cases you will need to engage a lawyer in the overseas country to take legal proceedings to help you get your child back. To take a person overseas, you need to get the agreement of anyone who has the day-to-day care of, or contact with, your child. It is a criminal offence to take, or try to take, a child out of New Zealand if it breaks any condition of a current Parenting Order/an application for an Order, or a case involving the child is about to go to Court. ➤➤ Botany Citizens Advice Bureau, rear Food Court entrance, Botany Town Centre, phone 271-5382 or 0800-267-222 for free, confidential and informative help.

Ade Green, design and planning manager Fletcher Living, walked them through the well designed terraced three-bedroom open home. Mr Brown, who has been keenly following the progress of the newly-developed area looked visibly impressed. “I love the energy of the new development,” he said. “Yaay, we have more houses now in this area for Aucklanders.” Of the seven, three have already been sold. “ There will be 63 houses in all - both terraced and duplexes,” said Mr Green. Mr Anderson of Todd Property mentioned that there will be 96 one, two and three front side apartments in the heart of the Ormiston Town Centre. “ They should be completed by end of 2018. The main retail area comprising of Warehouse, another supermarket and a shopping arcade with food and beverages as well as a cinema complex should be completed by that time,” he said.
