A new pilot scheme will commence from Monday 23rd July 2018 for six months, with the introduction of a new Family Procedure Rules 2010 (FPR 2010), PD 36H.
The pilot applies to female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced marriage protection orders, and the variation, extension and discharge of such orders. It is designed to improve notification to the police when a court makes these types of orders. FPR 2010, PD 36H provides, inter alia, that:
The Ministry of Justice has indicated that it is hoped that these changes to the service procedure will improve notification of such orders to the police, giving the police the opportunity to implement appropriate safeguarding strategies to enable vulnerable persons to be protected as early as possible.
The pilot will run nationally for six months, concluding on Friday 25 January 2019.
Geraldine Morris is a solicitor and head of LexisPSL Family.
