Financial remedy proceedings allocated to a High Court judge

This Practice Note sets out guidance on the allocation of financial remedy proceedings to a High Court judge, the criteria and procedure for such allocation and case management requirements. It includes details of the statement issued by Mostyn J on the efficient conduct of financial remedy hearings allocated to a High Court judge.

The Family Court came into effect on 22 April 2014. As a consequence there were significant changes to the allocation and transfer of proceedings, see Practice Notes: The Family Court—allocation and transfer of proceedings and The Family Court—judicial allocation. The then President of the Family Division, Sir James Munby, issued guidance on 28 February 2018 regarding the allocation of cases within the Family Court to a judge of High Court level, and the transfer of cases from the Family Court to the High Court, following what he referred to as ‘considerable confusion’ concerning the extent and exercise of the power by judges sitting in the Family Court to transfer a case, or part of a case, to the High Court. See News Analysis: President issues guidance on allocation and transfer of proceedings. Subsequently, revised guidance on the allocation of cases within the Family Court to High Court Judge level and the transfer of cases from the Family Court to the High Court was issued
