TUES 06/04/2010 - These Rules amend the Family Proceedings Rules 1991.
They substitute a new Part IVA into the 1991 Rules. This Part deals with an application for a parental order under section 54 of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 2008 (c.22). Section 54 replaces section 30 of the Human Fertilisation and Embryology Act 1990 (c.37) which has been repealed. The rules for the application for a parental order are modelled on the rules for the application for an adoption order contained in the Family Procedure (Adoption) Rules 2005 (SI 2005/2795).
These Rules come into force on 6 April 2010.
