The Law Commission is proposing reforms when it comes to enforcing financial orders.

Reforms would be welcome in my view.
Enforcing family financial orders – Law Commission proposes better solutions for separating couples Consultation open until 11th July 2015 In a consultation opening today, the Law Commission is seeking views on options for reform that would simplify and clarify the law and make it easier for the courts, practitioners and the public to use. In its consultation paper the Commission explores ways in which existing mechanisms for enforcing compliance can be made more effective and considers new mechanisms that might be used, in particular to bring pressure to bear on those who refuse to meet their obligations under a family financial order. The Law Commission notes that under existing law, the courts can struggle to enforce the family financial orders they make. The mechanisms for enforcement are contained in a range of legislation and court rules.
