Hadkinson orders

A Hadkinson order is an unusual order, but can be vital in the right circumstances. Where a party is in breach of court orders, for example to pay money or to provide disclosure, a Hadkinson order can stop them from bringing other applications and from being heard in proceedings.

The breach of an order is contempt of court. As well as being fined or imprisoned for contempt, a Hadkinson order will mean that the court can refuse to hear from a party who is in contempt. This will stop them from advancing their case through bringing additional applications, or even from arguing their case in hearings.

This is an important way of ensuring court orders are complied with, and can be very helpful in the right case.
