Sir James Munby, President of the Family Division has issued the second batch of Standard Family Orders, following on from the initial batch released on 30 November 2017.

The President is circulating the second batch of Standard Family Orders for consultation. Many of the orders have been in circulation for some time, some not, so the President has decided there needs to be a short consultation.

The consultation will run until Monday 16 April 2018. Comments, suggestions for improvements and any proposed drafting amendments should be sent by email to: President.FD.Munby@ejudiciary.net.

The second batch of Standard Financial Orders is available to download here.
