Principal Family Court judge appointed

Judge Jacquelyn (Jackie) Moran has been appointed as the principal judge of the Family Court.

Attorney-General David Parker said that the appointment is for a term of eight years. The judge has been on the Family Court bench since 2003. She was also the Family Court’s administrative judge for the southern region from 2008 to 2014.

The judge is considered a leader in the field, including in the early intervention process, which advances efficiency in proceedings about the care of children. She is also an active mentor and trainer of new judges.

“Judge Moran brings the experience and strong leadership needed to progress any improvements required in the Family Court, so that New Zealanders can be confident that mechanisms are in place to help families settle their disputes and safeguard the wellbeing of children,” the attorney-general said.
