Only if both parties agree... BUT if they refuse for it to be an FDR than I would save yourself a few thousand quid and self-rep. It sounds as if they have no intentions of negotiating and throwing out offers.
I went fully prepared to mine with both solicitor and barrister in hopes of turning it into and FDR- other side point blank refused and it was a wasted day and 5K for me.
Agree 100% with somuch: if the other party is playing up then it will probably go to a final hearing: I wish I had not bothered with a barrister at all but he was a complete waste of money for the FDR....
Is there a possibility that the other party has no intention to going to FDR at all, there really is not much capital to argue over in the first instance. Could it be that the ex just wants the case to be seen by the judge in order for there to be a opinion of possible settlement. Ex is using a sol whilst other party is self repping and has been from the beginning of divorce process.
