  1. change headnote - no provision under the M(SSC)A for making financial orders

    The current precedent headnote for consent orders gives three options for the regime under which the financial order is to be made:

    MCA 1973
    CPA 2004
    M(SSC)A 2013

    The third should not be there. There is no provision under the M(SSC)A for making financial orders (unlike the CPA).
    What the M(SSC)A does is to extend the existing statutory provisions re marriage to same sex couples.
    So financial orders for divorcing same sex couples will be made under the MCA 1973.

  3. When exporting to word document can the recitals be set out as Paragraphs A, B etc and the clauses as 1,2,3

    When you download to word document it is very much all over the place and the clauses retain the numbers from the precedents and do not flow in nice order taking a lot of time to tidy the order up and make clear. Surely when downloading the recitals could come out A,B,C and the clauses of the order as 1,2,3,

  4. Reintroduce “Christmas orders”

    current draft Consent Order Precedents do not contain Child maintenance “Christmas orders” as in the previous version. Is there a reason for this?

  5. Mesher/Martin orders. Why cant we have a precedent for the trust terms? at least basics like triggers and so on

    The Mesher/Martin order footnotes say the trust needs to be drafted by a specialist.

    surely that is our job? things like the trigger for sale or end of trust and who pays for structural repairs etc could be in a precedent format...

    Hi there Stephen -

    Thanks for your suggestion. We know we have a growing number of Mac users. We’ll monitor this as the user base grows in the coming weeks and days.

    We will add this as a possible update checking with the technical development team about what’s involved setting this up and maintaining it in future. Patrick

  10. Prec 53 - include option to override the link between applicant/respondent in first and second paragraph

    There's an assumption that if it is applicant in first para transfer to the applicant - that they also have conduct of the conveyancing. This isn't always the case.

  11. I want to be able to search all the precedents

    It would be great to be able to search for text within precedents - to find the one you need.

  12. When you hover over a precedent, the actual wording showed up in the blank page next to it

    it would be enormously helpful if when you hover over a precedent, the actual wording showed up in the blank page next to it!

  14. Preview of the full order (before export)

    It’s clearly crucial to be able to see the individual precedents before incorporating them into the draft order, a preview of the full order showing all precedents as they are included or deleted from the order would be great.

    Some people may just use a work around by ticking all precedents export to word then simple use this as a working document deleting the precedents they don’t need.

    Could be quicker than selecting the precedents you think you may want, exporting to word, reading through and deciding to add something more, going back to the saved order adding the precedent…

  17. 2nd batch - multiple proofing amends

    When exporting, lose headers of each clause but keep the numbering. If possible the numer will be on the same first line as the clause ie
    “32. The parties agree that….”
    If we can bring in the section headers from the left hand column into the exported doc that would be great –

    The first left hand column heading before 16 “Lump sum” – change to “Basis of lump sum order”

    5 – start bullet e with upper case The
    13 – end of para (a) change semi-colon to full stop. Samer at end of (b) and (c).
    18 –…

  19. The clause names "Agreement to do such and such" shouldn't export

    The clause names "Agreement to do such and such" shouldnt export - partly goes against directions from President and partly because they would need to become "smart" - ie respond to content so you didn't have "Agreement not to proceed under the Married Woman's Property Act" for a man.

    Getting rid of them for export is probably easy but need to insert some general headers into the agreement for ease of reference, eg "Introductory", "Scope" etc. The slight complexity is that these headers would not be part of a clause - they would sit before them.
