Updated form for appointing a litigation friend where protected party lacks capacity

The form for appointing a litigation friend if a protected party lacks capacity to conduct family proceedings has been updated. Known as the 'Litigation friend checklist', this is the first update to the form since it was published in April 2014.

The local council can complete the form in the event the protected party does not have a solicitor.
