Communicating with the Home Office in family proceedings- Revised Amalgamated Guidance
Date:1 MAR 2012

The ‘Communicating with the Home Office in Family Proceedings' protocol enables the family courts to communicate with the Home Office (UK Borders Agency and Identity and Passport Service) to obtain immigration, visa and passport information for family court proceedings. 

This guidance has been reissued to replace & amalgamate previous guidance issued in 2002, 2004, 2006 & 2010 (including the Communicating with the Passport Service 2004) to reflect the new contact details for the Home Office Liaison Officer who has responsibility for administering requests made under the Protocol.  It does not alter the nature or purpose of the Protocol.
