Following the announcement of revised versions of some Standard Family Orders, we are pleased to say that our orders drafting tool, FamilyOrders.co.uk, has been fully updated to incorporate all of the revised forms.
The revised orders are:
1.1. Financial Directions Order (Longer version)
1.2 Financial Directions Order (Shorter version)
2.1 Financial Remedy Order
2.2 Order under the Children Act 1989, Schedule 1
The revisions to the orders reflect the substitution of Family Procedure Rule 9.27 and the revisions of Forms H and H1.
Rule 9.27(8) now requires the court to record in a recital to its order details of costs estimates/particulars filed. Rule 9.27(9) requires the court to record in a recital to its order any failure by any party to comply with the requirements to file estimates/particulars of costs.
Specifically, the following changes have been made:
- Order 1.1: insertion of new paragraphs 20 and 21, and amendment to paragraph 86
- Order 1.2: insertion of new paragraphs 17, 18 and 43
- Order 2.1: insertion of new paragraphs 19 and 20
- Order 2.2: insertion of new paragraphs 18 and 19
The revised orders have also been updated with new commentary and guidance notes from HHJ Edward Hess.
The new forms are to be used from Monday 6th July 2020.
