Sir James Munby, President of the Family Division, has revealed that that a final approved draft of the revised Practice Direction 27A is due to come into force on 23 July 2018.

This update to the Practice Direction awaits only formal signature by the relevant Minister.

The basic PD27A remains as before but with some minor changes. As before the practice direction aims to achieve consistency across the country in the family court and the Family Division of the High Court in the preparation of court bundles.

The practice direction applies whether a bundle is being lodged for the first time, or is being re-lodged for a further hearing.

Main changes provided as part of the update include:

  • The introduction of page limits for certain types of document
  • Further requirements in relation to bundles of local authorities, and
  • The use of electronic bundles and how they are to be presented.

Never one to miss an opportunity, we’ve produced a short guide on key changes which can be downloaded below for free.
