The following Family practice note provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
The Family Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2018, SI 2018/440, amended the Family Procedure Rules 2010 (FPR 2010), SI 2010/2955, primarily introducing new provisions as to ‘fast-track’ and ‘standard’ procedures in relation to applications for a financial remedy. The ‘fast-track’ provisions were expanded to cover a wider range of applications, including where the application relates, inter alia, to an application for a periodical payments order only under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 (MCA 1973), Civil Partnership Act 2004 (CPA 2004) or Schedule 1 to the Children Act 1989 (ChA 1989)—note that previously an application for variation of a financial remedy order came under the accelerated procedure, but only an application for variation of a periodical payments order (with exceptions) will now be dealt with under the fast-track.

The changes apply only to proceedings issued on or after 4 June 2018, with transitional provisions in place.
