Family court guidance on public law
The April 2014 changes in family law are the most significant for a generation. As part of those changes, the president of the Family Division has issued a comprehensive set of court documents.
Introduction of the Public Law Order 2014
The new Public Law Order 2014 (PLO) makes some changes to the arrangements introduced as part of the pilot that began in July 2013. The case management hearing should now take place between day 12 and day 18 instead of by day 12.
This pushes the listing of the further case management hearing back to no later than day 25 instead of day 20.
