Money and Property Committee of the Family Justice Council seek to improve consistency
The Money and Property Committee of the Family Justice Council has produced best practice guidance for financial dispute resolution appointments.
The guidance was published last month in order to provide helpful practical advice on a number of issues raised in relation to the preparation, conduct and aftermath of FDRs with the aim of improving consistency and the parties’ experience of what the Committee describes as perhaps, the most important stage of financial remedy proceedings. The Committee notes that practitioners’ experience of the FDR process varies considerably across the country and that “there has hitherto been a lack of cohesive guidance as to ‘best practice’ for professionals and judges preparing and conducting FDRs”.
