Family Procedure (Amendment No. 2) Rules 2022

These Rules, which come into force on 1 October 2022, amend the Family Procedure Rules 2010 ("the FPR").

Rule 3 amends the FPR to clarify the time period within which an applicant must serve a forced marriage protection order or a female genital mutilation protection order on the respondent and, where applicable, on the person who is the subject of the proceedings.

Rule 4 amends the FPR to enable a practice direction to make provision for notification to the police when a forced marriage protection order or a female genital mutilation protection order is made, varied, extended or discharged.

Rule 5 inserts a new Chapter 6A into Part 12 of the FPR to make provision about return proceedings with linked protection claims (including asylum claims).

Rule 6 amends the FPR by inserting a new rule 36.2A enabling provision to be made by practice direction for the purposes of the piloted commencement of any provisions of Part 3 of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021 (for which section 90(7) to (9) of that Act makes provision).
