This Order is the first commencement order made under the Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007 ("the Act").

As so commenced, section 1 inserts new Part 4A (Forced Marriage), less section 63N, into the Family Law Act 1996; and section 3(1) and Part 1 of Schedule 2 give effect to consequential amendments to the law of England and Wales, save for consequential amendments relating to section 63N.
