Fulton County District Attorney Nathan Wade has reached a “tentative agreement” and canceled an upcoming hearing in his divorce case involving Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis and her election interference case in Georgia against former President Donald Trump were.

The move comes on the eve of a hearing in the case that had the potential to draw deposition from Wade, who is alleged to have been involved in an improper relationship with Willis that allegedly resulted in financial gain for both.

This development appears to prevent the release of any record of the allegations against Wade and Willis that could have been made at the hearing.

Andrea Hastings, the lawyer for Wade's wife, told ABC News: “The divorce is moving forward.”

“We still have a lot of work to do and prepare for either a settlement or a trial,” Hastings told ABC News.

“The parties, through their counsel of record, have entered into a preliminary agreement that addresses all issues currently pending before the court,” the order states. “Then the parties have further agreed that the terms and provisions of this temporary agreement will not be filed with the court.”

Therefore, the hearing originally scheduled for Wednesday will be canceled, the order states.

Michael Roman, one of Trump's co-defendants in the Georgia election interference case, wants to dismiss the charges against him and disqualify Willis. He claims she had “a personal, romantic relationship” with Wade that allegedly resulted in financial gain for both of them.

Trump, Roman and 17 others pleaded not guilty to all charges in August in a sweeping indictment over alleged efforts to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election in the state of Georgia.

Defendants Kenneth Chesebro, Sidney Powell, Jena Ellis and Scott Hall then entered into plea deals in exchange for agreeing to testify against other defendants.
