The Family Court (Composition and Distribution of Business) (Amendment) Rules 2014 (SI 2014/3297)
The Family Court (Composition and Distribution of Business) (Amendment) Rules 2014 were published on 18 December 2014.

These Rules amend the Family Court (Composition and Distribution of Business) Rules 2014 (S.I. 2014/840) (“the 2014 Rules”) to make provision in relation to the allocation in the family court of certain proceedings under Regulation (EU) No 606/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12th June 2013 on mutual recognition of protection measures in civil matters (the “Protection Measures Regulation”).

Rule 3 inserts new definitions into Part 5 of the 2014 Rules related to the amendments made by rules 4 to 6.

Rule 4 adds a number of proceedings under the Protection Measures Regulation to the list of proceedings that may be allocated in accordance with rule 16 of the 2014 Rules.

Rule 5 adds certain proceedings to the list of proceedings that a particular judge may hear when the proceeding is allocated in accordance with rule 15 of the 2014 Rules.

Rule 6 adds an order under Article 13 of the Protection Measures Regulation to the list of remedies that only judges of High Court level may carry out when the proceedings are allocated in accordance with rule 15 of the 2014 Rules and notwithstanding that if there are existing or connected proceedings allocated to a lower level of judge, rule 17 of the 2014 Rules might otherwise have caused the proceedings to be allocated to that level.
