Give WINZ a call and set up an appointment with them. They will tell you what you are eligable for and when you need to apply for it.

You should be eligable for working for families tac credits (WFF). This is income based and depends on how much you and your partner earn in a year.

If you are working you should have materinty leave written into your contract. The standard is 14 weeks paid leave and then up to a year off unpaid- this is only if you have been working there over a year, and if any less then it drops. I am not sure if it changes because you are not a NZ resident, might pay to check with IRD.

Guest, are you with the dad or not? I'm a little unsure from your post. If you are together you may be entitled to WFF so follow the links already provided and you'll see your entitlement. If you aren't together it would depend on your residency status.

FYI (even though this post is very old) if you say you are broken up to get the DPB and you are not, it is fraud and a criminal offence.
