Censorship laws need to be fully understood. 

Gone are the days where the only possible areas of concern were dirty postcards and the so-called  " filth "  of literature like Lady Chatterly's Lover.

With the ever increasing power of the Internet,  Society has had to work out the limits of freedom of expression.

  • How much do we restrict ?  
  • What are the penalties? 
  • How important is the privacy of your own home ?

I think that Home Detention is a bit of a sop. Either you go to prison or you do not! I think it is almost like getting off! Mike H - Wellington"

"I'm making an enquiry on behalf of a relative who is paying child support for a person who is in his mid 30s now, the inland revenue who he is making these payments to told me it is not child support it is spouse support payments and he needs to go back to court to have the order changed. Who do we call now as he is not on a good income and should qualify for legal aid.

Netlaw replies: Yes, Spousal Maintenance is different from Child Support. The Family Court deals with Spousal maintenance but the IRD (Child Support Division) deals with kid's maintenance. Choose any family court lawyer and if he earns less than about $33,000 he should get legal aid."

"I was a witness in Court recently in a criminal case and I was treated really badly. I was searched and then left on my own for over an hour and even then I was not offered and tea or coffee. I think there should be far more done for witnesses.
