Finances for First Hearing FDA

The financial process through court is generally in two or three stages.  The first is to gather information about the parties finances, the second is for the Judge to give an opinion on settlement and encourage you to settle, and the third is a full blown hearing to examine the finances and order a settlement.

Usually cases are settled at the second hearing, but you must prepare and provide the correct information for the first hearing to stand a decent prospect of getting a fair outcome.
