These Rules amend the Family Procedure Rules 2010 (SI 2010/2955) ('the FPR').

Rule 3 amends rule 4.4 of the FPR to clarify that written evidence must be taken into account if the court is considering striking out a statement of case.

Rule 8, and Schedules 1 and 2, insert new Parts 39 and 40 into the FPR, which set out the procedure to be followed in respect of applications for attachment of earnings orders, charging orders, stop orders and stop notices.

Rules 4 to 6 make amendments to the FPR which are consequential upon the introduction of the new Parts 39 and 40 of the FPR.

Rule 7 amends an out of date cross-reference in the FPR.
