Financial Remedy Consent applications- change of procedure


Please note that from 24th August 2020 legal professionals must make Financial Remedy consent applications using the Online Financial Remedy consent order service. To register for this service (‘My HMCTS’) and to find further information, please visit the following link: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/hmcts-online-services-for-legal-professionals

The practice direction to support this change (PD36T) will be issued on 24th August 2020 and makes temporarily modifications to PD41B. This makes the use of the online system mandatory for consent applications where the applicant is legally represented, unless one of the following exceptions applies:

  • The application is for a Variation order
  • There are existing Financial Remedy Proceedings
  • The matter is a Civil Partnership or Judicial Separation case

If one of the above exceptions applies, you should issue your application via paper.

Legal Professionals can also use the MyHMCTS service to issue divorce and Probate proceedings.
