Practice Note (Matrimonial Cause: Injunction): FD 1978

‘The President is greatly concerned by the increasing number of applications being made ex parte in the Royal Courts of Justice for injunctions, which could and should have been made (if at all) on two clear days’ notice to the other side, as required by the rules. An ex parte application should not be made, or granted, unless there is real immediate danger of serious injury or irreparable damage.’
