John Wilson, Barrister, 1 Hare Court, Temple. This article addresses the TR1 form and its predecessor and near relation form 19 (JP), and asks: how did we get here and what should we be doing about it? There is a summary of the relevant case-law. Questions such as what happens if none of the boxes has been ticked on the TR1 and what happens if the box is ticked but the TR1 is not signed are answered. The legal consequences of the execution of a declaration of trust within the TR1 are explored. See April  Fam Law 305 for the full article.
