President’s Guidance: Addition to Compendium of Standard Family Orders

New orders cover Child Deprivation of Liberty. An update Financial Remedy Order has also been issued.

  • Mr Justice Mosytn has issued three news standard orders and an addition to the existing Financial Remedy Order to take immediate effect. 

    The three new orders are those proposed by Sir James Munby in his decision Re A-F (Children) (No 2) [2018] EWHC 2129 (Fam) on 26 July 2018 at [13]. They relate to those cases where the inherent jurisdiction is invoked to authorise a deprivation of liberty in respect of children who are the subject of care proceedings. They will be placed in a new Chapter 23[1] as follows:

    Chapter 23: Child DoL Orders

    • Order 23.1: Directions on issue and allocation
    • Order 23.2: Directions on first hearing
    • Order 23.3: Order on final hearing

    The addition is to the Financial Remedy Order No. 2.1 and provides for a new para 25A. This gives the suggested form of words where the parties agree that the whole case, or a specific issue within it, should be referred to arbitration.

    The orders can be accessed using the links below.
