The court has told me that I need to attend a financial dispute resolution hearing. What does that mean? 
The purpose of a financial dispute resolution (or FDR) hearing is for the judge to give an indication as to the parameters of likely outcome should the parties not be able to negotiate a settlement and the matter has to be determined at a final hearing. 

The indication of the likely outcome from the judge should assist parties to negotiate a financial settlement, thus avoiding the stress, time and cost of attending a final hearing. 

Most parties reach an agreement at the FDR or shortly thereafter.
