The Ministry of Justice launched a consultation yesterday on draft court rules for the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007.
The consultation seeks responses on the draft court rules for the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007. It is primarily aimed at professional court users and those with knowledge of family court rules.
The consultation sets out the general approach adopted by the draft rules for applications for Forced Marriage Protection Orders and highlights the main aspects where it departs from rules for Part 4 orders (prior to its amendment by the Domestic Violence, Crime and Victims Act 2004).
The consultation closes on 24 April 2008.
More information, including a copy of the consultation questionnaire, can be found on the Ministry of Justice's website at:
