Ok, so you've been to Court (and quite possibly to Hell and back too) and you've got an Order from the Court. Perhaps, it was a Matrimonial Order following a divorce and an order has been made to put the former family home on the market. Or maybe it was a dispute with your former partner and they have been ordered to pay you a lump sum. But now, your ex-partner won't play ball and put that house on the market, or pay the lump sum - what should you do next?
Fortunately there are enforcement rules that a party can use to ensure compliance. Unfortunately the current rules regarding enforcement are complex.
In December 2016, the Law Commission published The Enforcement of Family Financial Orders report.
The Commission has highlighted some specific areas for improvement. It now recommends some keys changes with the intention of de-mystifying some of the complexity that surrounds the enforcement rules and making the complex simple. These include:
More guidance for parties when the order is made by including information to be printed on the back of Family Financial Orders, along with a guide to enforcement;
It is hoped that the recommendations will create a more effective enforcement system which ensures that both a creditor and a debtor are treated fairly.
If these recommendations are adopted, the consequences of failure to adhere to the terms of a Family Financial Order will become more far reaching. Imagine being banned from driving, in effect, because of an outstanding dispute with a former partner.
