Private law prescribed order templates

The president of the Family Court has commissioned HM Courts & Tribunals Service and a judicial working party to produce a new drop-down template. Until that’s ready, CAP 02 lite should be used as a basic template for private law orders to which the language of the CAP master orders can be added.

The CAP master order forms are separated into the following headings:

  • allocations and gate keeping
  • case management and S8 orders
  • enforcement

CAP 02 lite can be cut and pasted into the family justice case management system (FamilyMan), which will allow draft orders to be handed to parties at the end of hearings.
