New draft standard Financial Remedy Orders out for consultation

Legal Materials Copyright Statement & Disclaimer

Latest draft standard orders for family cases released for consultation, including a comprehensive financial remedies 'omnibus' consent order.

  • A significant tranche of the standard template orders for financial remedy and other procedural matters have been released for consultation. They are part of the programme announced by the President in July this year.

    The orders have been drafted by a team led by Mr Justice Mostyn and cover many key aspects of family practice. This tranche of 30 new templates includes a financial remedy 'omnibus' order which is essentially a consent order with every permutation that the authors can think of in 87 clauses. A similar omnibus approach has been adopted for financial remedy directions. Other topics covered include reporting restrictions, forced marriage and committal proceedings. It is understood that ToLATA orders will follow in the New Year.

    Use of the final versions of these orders is expected to be made mandatory from April 2014. 

    The draft orders can be downloaded from a Dropbox folder here but each one will be properly added to the Hub in the next week or two. They will of course be updated as and when necessary.

    The orders will also be integrated within Class Legal's Quantum Family Forms software as soon as possible with release expected in December.
