Ask a Family Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello, this is Jim and I am a dual-qualified lawyer (UK and Republic of Ireland) and happy to help you today.
The applicant must prepare the bundle for the FDR hearing. The FDA hearing "can" be used as the FDR assuming both parties agree and that all documents are available to allow negotiations to take place. You should just take a copy of your own Form E, Form G, questionnaire, statement of issues and the chronology to the hearing on 9th December 2019. The judge will give directions which includes which answers must be addressed from the questionnaires and the documents to be disclosed too (in readiness for the FDR). Don't be bullied by the solicitors - they are trying to take advantage of the fact you are a litigant in person to scare you.
If you want an advocate to come with you then these companies can offer one at a good rate :

I am not sure - you will need to bring that up at the FDA hearing. I don't know anything about the case and wouldn't know why that solicitor has said that.
If you could please leave a rating for your original question and click “submit” I would be very grateful.
