The President has issued guidance (12 June 2018) on standard children and other orders for general use. This comes after Resolution input into draft versions of these orders.
Like the standard financial and enforcement orders (30 November 2017), these orders do not have the strict status of forms within Part 5 of the FPR 2010 and their use, although very strongly to be encouraged, is not mandatory. A standard order may be varied by the court or a party if the variation is required by the circumstances of a particular case. There will be many circumstances when a variation is required and departure from the standard form will not prevent an order being valid and binding.
Our online version of the standard financial remedy order will be available for free to members via our online drafting platform, shortly with extensive advisory footnotes and practical guidance, written by our experienced Drafting Committee.
