Structure of the book
The binder is divided into 14 Divisions labelled General and A–M, which are separated by red plastic divider cards. The General Division contains headings and opening and closing parts which are in common use for many family law applications, and some precedents relating to minors and parties under a disability. Detailed contents lists are given at the beginning of each Division.
In most Divisions, the precedents are followed by relevant procedural guides. Precedents and procedural guides are sequentially numbered throughout each Division, eg Precedent F1 et seq; Procedural Guide F1(PG) et seq.
Page numberingThe page number is at the foot of each page and includes the Division letter and the page number, eg A–31.
How to use the precedents
The precedents in this book are model documents which are intended to be adapted for use as working documents. Most of these are available on the accompanying CD-ROM, in word-processing format. Further details concerning the use of the CD-ROM and its contents are available in the file readme.doc.
Within the model documents, text in square brackets in italics gives instructions; text in square brackets in roman is suggested text or alternative wordings. Alternative provisions are introduced by EITHER [alternative A] OR [alternative B], etc. Once the document has been modified and completed to suit individual needs, the square brackets, instructions, alternative text and any clauses which are not required should be deleted. Any text in round brackets should remain.
Tables and index
The book contains tables of cases, statutes, statutory instruments and practice directions. These are located behind the plastic divider card marked ‘Tables’.
A subject index appears at the end of the binder.
The tables and index will be updated along with the rest of the book.
