Private Law Working Group issues draft Guidance on the use of Prescribed Documents (Private Law)
The Private Law Working Group has produced draft Guidance on the use of Prescribed Documents (Private Law). The President will identify documents that are to be in prescribed form from time to time with the object of ensuring that documents filed by the parties and their lawyers comply with the content and standards set out in any prescribed form. The draft guidance is available to download here.
The President of the Family Division would welcome and value all comments from anyone with an involvement or interest in the family justice system on these proposals. Comments should be sent to Nicola Massally (Nicola.massally@judiciary.gsi.gov.uk) and Joanna Wilkinson (Joanna.wilkinson@judiciary.gsi.gov.uk).
Comments should be sent by 6 January 2014.
The Private Law Working Group was set up by the President of the Family Division in August 2013 under the chairmanship of Mr Justice Cobb. Its report, which has just been released, recommends the replacement of the Private Law Programme with an entirely new Child Arrangements Programme. The Working Group has prepared further draft documents and also approved an expectation document prepared by Cafcass.
