The President of the Family Division's Guidance published in November 2017 formally promulgated the use of standard family orders throughout the Family Court and the High Court. As the President says in his Guidance the standard orders should be 'the starting point, and, I would hope and expect, usually the finishing point, of the drafting exercise'.
The Standard Family Orders Handbook, published in 2 volumes, is the approved source of guidance to these official orders with a Foreword from the President.
This second volume covers children and other orders handled in the Family and High Court. HHJ Edward Hess, HHJ Martin Dancey and Edward Devereux QC provide invaluable commentary on when and how to use each order, with a brief description of its purpose. The text of the orders is also interwoven with useful practice points where relevant.
This second edition contains the latest version of each order (notably Order 8.4: Public Law Short Form Order for any hearing other than the first case management hearing and the final hearing) plus new orders that have been released since the first edition (such as Order 13.30: Port Alert Order), together with fully updated commentary.
