About Law & Information

The Law image

For anyone going through personal and family difficulties, it is important to have an understanding of what rights the child, parents, and other family members have, what are the procedures involved when a case goes to court, how does one apply for a court order in the first place, what other useful bodies/agencies can one turn to for help, and so on.

With the right information the process can become a lot less daunting.

Choose from the topics in the left hand menu for more information.
