The Ministry of Justice has amended forms FL401, FL401A, FL403, FL403A and FL415 to reflect the introduction of new procedures which the Family Procedure (Amendment) Rules 2017 on 6th April.

These Rules clarify that an individual applicant must not serve the application and/or order they are seeking protection from.

Subscribers to this range should use the latest versions of these amended forms for applications completed on and after 6th April.
