Where do I get the the application from? My husband is currently in Solomon Islands, does this matter? How do I register the application in the NZ court system and pay any applicable fee if I am not in New Zealand - can this be done electronically?
If I cant file electronically does this mean it must be posted or does it need to be hand delivered and 'stamped' or something similar.
Thank you that is clearer. If he makes an application in another country under the laws of that country, can I still file in New Zealand
May I have someone or a lawyer file it on my behalf in New Zealand, as I am not residing in NZ
He is a New Zealand Citizen but works on contract over many years around the world, returning to NZ occasionally for family. His intent is still to return to NZ to live after contracts cease. I have not lived in NZ for a number of years and have no citizenship or residential status. Our children are in school in NZ
