I have an urgent question, my FDR is due to be heard on Friday, my ex has contacted myself and the court to ask for the case to be moved. As not to waste the courts time.
This is due to his paper work not being ready, there is a penal notice already in place
My question is, do I have to confirm to my ex and/or the court that I will be attending, or will the court frown on wasting time by my not agreeing to postpone?
There is no right or wrong answer here. If you agree it will delay the case which is unfair on you and if you don't agree you run the risk that a judge might be critical and say that the hearing should have been relisted.
However, given the proximity of the hearing the chances of an application being processed in time to relist the hearing are small.
You could agree not to contest the application but make it clear that you will attend the hearing unless the court otherwise orders.
