The Standard Family Orders Handbook is the approved source of guidance to the official Standard Family Court Orders, covering financial remedies, enforcement and other matters.

HHJ Edward Hess, Deputy National Lead Judge, Financial Remedies Court, provides invaluable commentary on when and how to use each order, with a brief description of its purpose. The text of the orders is also interwoven with useful practice points from HHJ Hess. In addition, the colour coding in the approved orders has been reproduced so that you can easily see what to amend when drafting your orders.

"I commend this edition to those who practice in this area of work; whether tasked with drafting a specific order or not, it is an invaluable resource to all. Edward Hess has worked rapidly, and with herculean industry, to produce this enormously helpful updated third edition in which all the updated money orders are printed in full with its trademark ‘blue box’ comments.' - Mr Justice Peel, Judge-in-Charge of the Standard Orders

'The Standard Family Orders Handbook has the tremendous benefit for the practitioner not only of presenting full versions of all the orders in published book form for the first time, but also the very great assistance of the author's editorial comments, in which he uses his considerable experience as a barrister and judge in the family justice system to identify when particular orders, or particular parts of orders, might sensibly be used.' - Sir James Munby, Former President of the Family Division
