Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.

Yes, she should file for divorce first. If she were to settle first, then the proceeds from the settlement could be divided in the subsequent divorce.

Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
