I’d heard of the existence of this protocol, full title Protocol on communications between judges of the Family Court and Immigration and Asylum Chambers of the First-tier Tribunal and Upper Tribunal, but never particularly had cause to take a look. Here it is for reference.
The protocol governs disclosure between family and immigration proceedings with a view to ensuring that judges in both jurisdictions are aware of what is going on in the other. The emphasis is firmly on judges doing the communicating, with little or no mention of the views of the affected parties being taken into account.
