Some people are able to negotiate a deal directly between themselves. 

If so, they can instruct solicitors to embody the terms in a Consent Order. 

This could involve both parties disclosing their respective financial positions before the deal is confirmed.

If it is not possible to come to an agreement as mentioned above, then solicitors can be asked to negotiate. 

However, for full advice to be given as to what is and is not a reasonable settlement disclosure is needed. This is often effected on a voluntary basis and it is reciprocal. Thereafter solicitors can hopefully conclude an agreement.
