At last a journal has been launched to fill what seems to me to be a gross and obvious gap in the market. It has always struck me how our existing family law journals tend to treat financial remedies law and practice as the poor relation. Developments in public and private law children work, and in international children work, always seem to be given priority, bestowing on the money cases a Cinderella status. This is both understandable and at the same time surprising.

The Hon. Mr Justice Mostyn

In my opinion, this is a wonderful initiative. Class Publishing has assembled an editorial team of the highest intellectual quality. They will ensure that the FRJ becomes the periodical of choice for financial remedy practitioners. I wish the project well. No doubt I will suffer a certain amount of apprehension immediately before each issue hits the stands, but that is as it should be.

The Financial Remedies Journal website is the dedicated website for everything related to financial remedies.


  • The journal articles will be available online on the FRJ website, but the website will also benefit from a number of other features.
  • Instant and right up to date hyperlink access to a wide range of judgments in the field produced by our Case Editor, Polly Morgan and her team. Unlike many databases this will include judgments by judges lower than High Court level, reflecting the President’s 10% Transparency ambition and the fact that the judgments by High Court judges and above in this area tend to deal only with very big money cases, which are not necessarily typical of the daily bread and butter of family court life.
  • Immediate hyperlink access in the FRC corner to all FRC relevant guidance (national and local) as well as to the most recent version of the Standard Family Orders.
  • There is a topical FRJ blog lead by our Blog Editor Emily Ward and her team. If you have something to say about financial remedies, please do get in touch and get it off your chest on the blog.
  • The FRJ has also launched an innovative facility to allow for the creation of a private FDR directory under the directions of Deborah Dinan-Hayward. It is hoped that if interested practitioners post their details on the directory, there will develop a resource which the profession can use as a “go to” tool when compiling pFDR tribunal shortlists. Please do consider posting your credentials on the site so that a comprehensive and diverse pFDR directory can evolve.
