Sir Paul McCartney and estranged wife Heather Mills will attempt to agree a divorce settlement at a secret meeting before a judge.
The couple and their legal representatives will attend a one-day hearing at London's Royal Courts of Justice in a bid to avoid the media.
The Beatles legend hopes the hearing will settle a financial deal and avoid the dispute moving to a costly and public hearing.
A source tells British newspaper The Times, "This case ought to settle. It is absolutely straightforward."
