Abstract

There is a long and fascinating history to the changes brought about by the Property (Relationships) Act 1976. This article examines the history of these reforms by focusing on the policy context from the 1980s until today and looking at the fundamental forces driving policy change. This article is based on a recent interview with the Hon. Margaret Wilson, Attorney-General and Associate Minister of Justice, who was responsible for overseeing the final chapter of the matrimonial and de facto property reforms from 1999-2001.

Keywords: Property Law, Relationship Property, New Zealand, Hon. Margaret Wilson
