Settle Conference is specifically directed at forcing the parties to settle on as many of the issues as possible. Case conferences sometimes do this but also have other purposes and are more general.

It is always cheaper to settle before appearing the judge even for SC.

Equalization is in theory the simplest part of the process because it's simple math. However dishonesty and emotions often make it challenging. If both parties have filled in the Net Family Property on the financial statement it should be simple to figure the equalization amount.

If one or both parties haven't exchanged completed financial statements yet, your offer to settle can be the following:

-Pursuant to the Family Law Act, the parties agree that an equalization payment may be owing. The amount of the payment will be calculated by the lawyers for each party after the parties have disclosed their Net Family Property. The average of the two calculations shall be used.

No evidence is required for an offer to settle. In fact, the law states that parties can estimate amounts on their NFP or income as long as both parties agree to use the estimate.
