About Maria Kazmierow


In family law, Family Court deals with domestic violence, the mentally disordered and incapacitated. I have a special interest in better understanding such vulnerable groups, and the sectors that support them. I have until recently been a board member and trustee for two “not for profit” organisations:

  • Supporting Families in Mental Illness Auckland (formerly SF Auckland – Schizophrenia Fellowship). This NGO provides support for families who are dealing with loved ones who are suffering from mental illness.
  • ICWG – Inner City Women’s Group. This NGO provides support services for female victims and perpetrators of domestic violence, as well as other support services for women and children.
