The Family Proceedings (Amendment) (No 2) Rules 2007 (SI 2007/2187) and the Family Proceedings Courts (Miscellaneous Amendments) Rules 2007 (SI 2007/2188) make provision for the automatic disclosure of information relating to proceedings concerning children which are heard in private and ancillary relief proceedings in a county court or the High Court or financial proceedings akin to ancillary relief proceedings in a magistrates' court. The amendments provide that information relating to these proceedings may be given to the Secretary of State, a McKenzie Friend, a lay adviser or to an appeal tribunal as long as it is for the purposes of an appeal heard by a Child Support Appeal Tribunal.
See the amending Rules in Legislation below. For further information on all these matters see October  Fam Law.
