Know Your Rights

Know Your Rights

A practical guide to the law for every New Zealand household

Every one of us will at some point be confronted with a legal problem.

Know Your Rights shows you how to deal with legal conflicts, when outside
assistance is required and what sort of questions you should be asking of
your legal advisor.

Written in plain English, this guide describes most of the
common legal scenarios ordinary New Zealanders may face in their course
of their day-to-day lives.

Answers to such questions as:
 Who is judged to be at fault in a nose-to-tail car accident?
 Can you go to jail for sending offensive texts?
 How can you obtain free relationship counselling?
 Where can you get a Will made for free?
 Is it true that a child may be barred from school for being ‘unclean’?
 How can you save money when dealing with a lawyer?
 Where can you get a divorce for $175?
 How can you challenge an expensive lawyer’s bill?

Know Your Rights is an indispensable addition to any home reference library and aims to help people save time and money in legal matters.
