and Form A1
have been amended in discussion with members of the Financial Proceedings Working Party of the Family Procedure Rule Committee. These changes are in consequence of the amendments to Part 9 FPR to provide for financial remedy applications to be dealt with through the standard procedure or fast-track procedure, as appropriate, and come into effect today (4 June 2018). These rule amendments were published in the Family Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2018 (SI 2018/440)
Applications for one or more orders indicated on Form A
(primarily but not exclusively matrimonial cases, as for current Form A) will be listed on the standard track. Form A1
now deals with a more limited range of orders to be dealt with under the fast-track (or standard track if the court subsequently decides to move the proceedings to that track).
Previous versions of these forms will not be accepted on or after today.
