Wellington – Office of the Chief Registrar

The Office of the Chief Registrar is an information office that is open to the public. Whilst we can provide general information, usually only applications to the Chief Judge and the Māori Appellate Court may be lodged in our Wellington office (there are some exceptions, which you can discuss with us). You are welcome to lodge other applications with us, but these will be forwarded to the appropriate registry office of the Court for processing.

In Wellington you can:

  • get application forms and advice
  • get help with locating Māori land
  • search our electronic database.

We don’t have any court records in Wellington but we’ll be able to help you identify which office you need to contact.
