  • Standard order 3.1—freezing order—family proceedings

Note that on 30 November 2017 the President of the Family Division, Sir James Munby, issued additional guidance as to the use and status of financial and enforcement standard orders within family proceedings, see: Practice Guidance: Standard Financial and Enforcement Orders and News Analysis: Financial and enforcement standard orders to be placed on a more ‘formal footing’. In his 18th View from the President’s Chambers dated 23 January 2018 the President confirmed that some of the standard orders published on 30 November 2017 contained ‘a minor error’. Amended versions of those standard orders were published on 22 January 2018 in the Practice Guidance: Standard financial and enforcement orders (addendum) and subsequent amendments where made on 16 November 2020 via a note issued by Mostyn J to reflect the substitution of Family Procedure Rules 2010 (FPR 2010), SI 2010/2955, Pt 37 and FPR 2010, PD 37A from 1 October 2020. This Precedent standard order has been reviewed and reflects the version dated 16 November 2020.
