Disputed Resolution Hearing

I was in court last month and with the court order I was sent a parent questionnaire, a very long document. Asks questions about reason for split, concerns, my working hours, distance between myself and ex. My solicitor, courts, other people I know in the same situation have never heard of it. Has anyone else received one? No date for return was given.

Is it a witness statement template? A C120? They are not commonly used but a good basis for a statement
Does the order refer to dates for filing of statements? I don't think it's compulsory to use the template unless the order says but if you do use it, it will cover everything that should be covered

There is no name on it and it's not a witness statement template. It's literally just called parents questionnaire. I was not given a date to return either.

That is odd. Could it have come from Cafcass or a mediation service that offers mediation at the court?
Does it say where to return it to?

It was attached in 1 document from the court with the child arrangement order as a PDF. Not date for return nor who to return it to. Just says it will assist the judge with having an understanding of the background. Both parents have to it apparently. Says version 1. May 2014, yet no one has heard of it! All very odd.
