A pilot scheme has been issued in the South West Regional Divorce centre in Southampton de-linking financial proceedings from divorce proceedings. Usually, if a contested financial application is made the entire divorce proceedings are transferred to a local court to be dealt with. This causes delay for court users and is resource intensive for court staff to administer. The pilot scheme will see the administrative de-linking of financial proceedings from divorce so that the main divorce proceedings can remain in the specialist centre and staff and judiciary at the local hearing centres can work independently on the contested financial proceedings. Consent applications will remain at the divorce centres. If the pilot is a success the process is expected to be rolled out to all the courts in England and Wales in June 2017.
