MoJ admits error in Form E1

Affects a total of 3 cases filed between between April 2011 and March 2012.

  • The Ministry of Justice has identified a historical error in their Formfinder version of form E1.

    The error, similar to that which affected Form E, was revealed in a letter to the Justice Committee sent by the Justice Secretary, Michael Gove.

    He states that the error was present for anyone using the version of the form available from the HMCTS Formfinder site between April 2011 and March 2012.

    He goes on to say that HMCTS have conducted a search on a set of 459 cases that had a record of a financial application or a reference to Form E1 filed during this period. They then checked those cases to see if the calculation was wrong and identified 3 cases where there was an error. They have written to the individuals concerned to let them know of their options.

    You can read the full letter on the MoJ website.
