Welcome to the Parenting Arrangements after Separation Study (PASS)

This study aims to better understand how separated parents and caregivers make or change arrangements for children’s care and to determine how New Zealand’s reformed family justice system is working for parents and professionals.

The nationwide study is being conducted by the Faculty of Law and the Children’s Issues Centre at the University of Otago and is funded by the New Zealand Law Foundation. It will investigate the perceptions and experiences of separated parents and caregivers, family justice professionals, and key stakeholders via online surveys and interviews.
