Let me see if I can help and please rate positive. You have a couple of options: either both of you write to the court and simply advise that you have reached an agreement and the court date can be 'vacated'. This is often the simplest way to resolve the matter. Tell the Cafcass officer when they ring you that you have both reached an agreement and then they can advise the court. The other option is that if you both fail to attend the hearing and only one of you writes to the court advising that you have reached a settlement is it likely that the matter will simply be dismissed by the court. I hope that this helps and please rate positive. Thanks
