Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Act of Sederunt)
This Act of Sederunt amends Chapter 71 of the Rules of the Court of Session (which relates to the registration and enforcement of certain orders under the Family Law Act 1986) by changing the name of the type of order with which that Chapter is concerned from a “custody order” to a “Part I order”. The changes made by the Act of Sederunt reflect amendments made to the Family Law Act 1986 by the Children Act 1989.
