Retired Circuit Judge
The Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007 inserted Part 4A into the Family Law Act 1996 (‘FLA 1996') by adding sections 63A - 63S (now known generally as ‘Part 4A'). The procedural rules which were to apply to applications for a forced marriage protection order (FMPO) were provided by the Family Proceedings (Amendment) Rules 2008 (SI 2008/2446), which inserted new provisions into the Family Proceedings Rules 1991 by adding rr 3.25-3.36 to the Family Proceedings Rules 1991 (‘FPR 1991').
