The president of the family division has provided further details of new specialist courts being piloted to deal with the financial aspect of divorce proceedings - an area he has dubbed 'the Cinderella of family justice'. In December Sir James Munby set out a blueprint for the financial remedies courts, which are part of wider efforts to separate divorce administratively from its financial consequences. The courts will initially be piloted in London, the West Midlands and south-east Wales. Further pilots will follow after Easter, starting with the rest of the Midland circuit, the north-eastern circuit and parts of the south-eastern circuit. Next week Munby will present the family procedure rule committee with a revised draft form to be used for all types of financial remedy applications.
