What questions are asked at a divorce final hearing?

Knowing what to expect in family proceedings can take away some of the stress and pressure, particularly if you are not represented by a solicitor. It can also help you prepare for what is to come and although court should always be viewed as a last resort, in some cases, it is not possible to reach an agreement. Where a final hearing is necessary, it is usually because one or both parties have not meaningfully engaged in the process, or they are welded to an outcome that is unrealistic. Final hearings are rare, this is because out of the cases that get to court, the vast majority are settled before reaching that stage.
