The leading authority on all aspects of family law

03 APR 2014

The Crime and Courts Act 2013 (Family Court: Consequential Provision) (No.2) Order 2014

This Order may be cited as the Crime and Courts Act 2013 (Family Court: Consequential Provision) (No.2) Order 2014 and comes into force on 22nd April 2014.

This Order makes amendments to secondary legislation in consequence of the establishment of the family court as provided for in section 17 of the Crime and Courts Act 2013 (c.22). The coming into force of the family court means that magistrates' courts and the county court will no longer have jurisdiction to hear family proceedings or matters relating to the enforcement or variation of orders made in family proceedings. These matters will be dealt with in the family court.

Schedules 10 and 11 to the Crime and Courts Act 2013, together with the Crime and Courts Act 2013 (Family Court: Consequential Provision) Order 2014 make amendments to various primary provisions to reflect the coming into force of the family court. This Order makes amendments to secondary legislation for that same purpose. In particular it amends various statutory instruments to reflect the fact that matters referred to in them will be heard in the family court; and amends various other statutory instruments which make provision for proceedings in the magistrates'courts to remove from them references to matters which will no longer be heard in those courts.

An impact assessment for this Order is annexed to the Explanatory Memorandum, which isavailable alongside this Order at www.legislation.gov.uk.
