Same thing. Contested just means you haven't agreed, hence final hearing.

Same thing, I think. Hopefully it will mean it all gets sorted out.

Was wondering if someone could advise

My partner has a final hearing listed for Thursday, the last directions hearing was an urgent hearing because his ex wasn't handing the children over for contact and so the judge transferred the case to family proceedings court at magistrates court. The court order states final hearing and the date/time etc.

His ex's solicitor is preparing the bundles and in the case summary states that its a contested hearing as his ex doesn't want contact to move on from contact centre but my partner does.

I'm confused between the court order stating a final hearing and the solicitor calling it a contested hearing.

Is this the same thing? could someone please explain?

Thanks smile
