Forced Marriage Protection Orders: Practice and Procedure under FPR 2010

Her Honour Nasreen Pearce

Retired Circuit Judge

The Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007 inserted Part 4A into the Family Law Act 1996 (‘FLA 1996') by adding sections 63A - 63S (now known generally as ‘Part 4A'). The procedural rules which were to apply to applications for a forced marriage protection order (FMPO) were provided by the Family Proceedings (Amendment) Rules 2008 (SI 2008/2446), which inserted new provisions into the Family Proceedings Rules 1991 by adding rr 3.25-3.36 to the Family Proceedings Rules 1991 (‘FPR 1991').
