Family Practitioners Update

  • 13/10/2022

Please see the below update and reminders from HMCTS
Updated: From Tuesday 25 October 2022, we’re updating the Probate caveat application process (to challenge someone else’s probate application) to make it simpler and more consistent for all users. Probate practitioners and personal applicants can access the updated PA8A form to apply to stop an application for a grant of representation for up to 6 months and use the new PA8B form to apply for a caveat extension. All applications will need to be submitted to: HMCTS Probate, PO Box 12625, Harlow, CM20 9QE. Read guidance for more information on caveat applications.
Reminder: When using MyHMCTS to manage family public law cases, please remember to upload all documents relating to a case. Do not send them to judges or the Service Centre by email.
Reminder: When managing family public law cases you must submit additional applications on MyHMCTS. They’re sent to parties automatically and there’s no need to send them to Service Centres separately via email.
