The Family Procedure (Amendment No 2) Rules 2016 were published on 8 September 2016.

These rules amend the Family Procedure Rules 2010 (SI 2010/2955) ('the FPR').

Rule 3 amends rule 8.20 of the FPR so that a child will not be automatically a party to proceedings for a declaration of parentage under section 55A of the Family Law Act 1986. Rules 5 to 7 amend Part 16 of the FPR to make provision for when a child who is made a respondent to an application under section 55A of the Family Law Act 1986 must have a children’s guardian or a litigation friend, and for circumstances when such a child may proceed without a children’s guardian or litigation friend.

Rule 4 inserts new rule 9.9A into Part 9 of the FPR to set out the procedure for applications to set aside financial remedy orders.

Rule 8 amends rule 28.3 of the FPR to provide that applications under the new rule 9.9A are not financial remedy proceedings for the purpose of rule 28.

No impact assessment has been produced for this instrument because no, or no significant, impact on the private, voluntary or public sectors is foreseen.
