*VS v RE

Family proceedings – Jurisdiction. The applicant had been mistaken to issue proceedings under Sch 1 of the Children Act 1989 and subsequent enforcement proceedings in the High Court rather than the Family Court. FPR Practice Direction 40A para 4.1 should not be construed as saying that only the High Court or the County Court could order a sale of property the subject of a charging order. Accordingly, the judge ruled that the case should be transferred to the Family Court.
