What is a Financial Dispute Resolution Hearing?

The Financial Dispute Resolution Hearing, or FDR is a hearing that takes place in financial settlement proceedings between a married couple, or a couple in a civil partnership. At this hearing, both parties are encouraged to spend time at Court negotiating a financial settlement if possible. The Court will look at the information and evidence and will try and help you both negotiate an agreement by giving an indication of what types of orders it considers suitable.

If you have been ordered to attend an FDR hearing, or if you need any further information about financial settlement proceedings, please telephone Rowlinsons Solicitors on 01928 735333 and ask to speak with the family department.
