The Forced Marriage (Civil Protection) Act 2007 is due to come into force on 25 November 2008.

The main aim of the act is to enable the family courts to prevent forced marriages from taking place and to stop attempts to force another person into marriage. Where a forced marriage has already taken place, the court will be able to make orders to protect the victim and help remove them from the situation.
