Table of contents

Issue 51 February 2020

In this issue all the divisions have been updated to deal with relevant case law and practice, procedural rules and practice directions. In particular, the procedural tables now include the relevant references to the FPR 2010 as amended and precedents of orders have been revised to set out the appropriate form of penal notice as defined in the amended FPR 2010, Part 37 and the notices in relation to confirmation of understanding of terms of any undertaking given and its consequences to comply with the requirements of Part 37. In addition, in all the precedents for statements in support of an application, the form of statement of verification of truth has been amended to set out the proposed form in the forthcoming amendments to the FPR 2010 to conform with that which is required under the amendments made to the CPR 1998 since October 2020 and which in any event is set out in FPR 2010, r 17.6.
  • Division A. The procedural tables have been revised to deal with the extension of the pilot scheme and the precedent of orders includes directions for remote/hybrid hearings. It highlights the need when considering the impact of domestic abuse on a child or parent that the abuse includes controlling and coercive behaviour as emphasised in case law and more recently in JH v MF [2020] EWHC 86 (Fam). The section that deals with secure accommodation has been updated to include all serious concerns raised in recent cases of the impact of lack of secure accommodation and when it would be appropriate to rely on the inherent jurisdiction of the court in order to place a child in unregulated secure accommodation.
  • Division D. The provisions of BIIR have been retained in this issue to assist practitioners in relation to those cases commenced before 31 December 2020 but that will cease to apply thereafter as a result of Brexit. All other material has been updated to refer to the relevant provisions of the Hague Convention 1996, which will in future be relied on.
  • Division E. The chapter that deals with committal has been revised to set out the procedure that must be followed under the
    provisions of the amended FPR 2010, Part 37 and PD37A.
