This consultation relates to proposed amendments to Part 9 of the Family Procedure Rules (FPR): Application for a financial remedy.
These amendments are intended to facilitate the “de-linking” of applications for a financial order from proceedings for a decree of divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership, so that it will no longer be possible to make an application for a financial order in a divorce petition or dissolution application.
Additionally, the proposed amendments would also make changes to the types of financial remedy cases to which the procedure in Chapter 5 of Part 9 of the FPR applies, rename that procedure as “fast track” and make some minor changes to the procedure itself.
This consultation closes at 5pm on Friday 8 September 2017.
