Typical wait between FA, FDR and final hearing

Typical wait between FA, FDR and final hearing
February 09, 2020 10:40AM
I'm in the process of getting divorced.

We should have a custody consent order agreed in the next few days. Once this is agreed, I'm going to send off my Form A as unfortunately, we're in complete disagreement in how the finances should be settled.

I appreciate this varies between different courts but does anyone know how long it might take between FA, FDR and final hearing?

I've read online that it might take around 12-16 weeks to get to FA and then at least 3 months to get to the FDR. Is this accurate? I'm hoping things can be resolved at the FDR stage.

Any suggestions greatly received.

The time scales you have mentioned are approximately correct - insofar as these things can be. There is, though, a big difference between courts depending upon how busy they are. I had a case last year where the wait between the First Appointment and the FDR appointment was nine months. That is unusual but it does happen.
