The CF1 is mandatory for non FAS/FGF cases from 2nd December 2013.

Following discussions with the Bar Council regarding improving the CF1 form it has been agreed to issue a new version called the CF1A.  Although recommended as an acceptable alternative submission to the CF1, use of the CF1A is voluntary and the CF1 will continue to be accepted.

The CF1A is being implemented on 4 August as an acceptable alternative submission to the CF1.  Use of the CF1A is recommended but voluntary.

If the CF1A is not used, the CF1 must continue to be used.
