The Family Procedure Rule Committee has amended forms A58 and D89 for family proceedings.

  • A58 – the amendments on the form relate to the production of documents with the application for an adoption order. It increases the types of documents in relation to identity that prospective applicant (s) can provide the court to include a driving licence where applicable. No amendments have been made to the associated guidance notes on completing the A58 at this time.
  • D89 – court users in family proceedings requesting a bailiff to serve their paperwork on another party within the proceedings, will need to complete this form prior to the papers being served to enable the bailiffs to assess the risk involved when effecting service of the documents. Court staff will not be able to accept requests for bailiff serve unless it is accompanied by this form.

Both forms come into effect on 3 October.
