Attorneys for Jon and Kate Gosselin will meet Tuesday with a court-appointed arbitrator to hammer out the economic issues in their contentious divorce.
Kate, who is seeking child and spousal support, has accused Jon of taking $230,000 from the family account.
Jon denies the withdrawals were inappropriate and wants Kate to account for more than $100,000 she withdrew.
"There are two sides to every story," Jon's attorney Mark Heller tells PEOPLE in a statement.
If the reality TV pair with eight kids resolves the financial dispute privately, they could avoid a hearing before a Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, judge. Kate's attorney, Mark Momjian, had requested the emergency hearing, seeking to force Jon to return the money.
The arbitration comes as heated relations between the Gosselins seem to have cooled slightly. Jon spent a quiet weekend at their Wernersville, Penn, home, carving pumpkins with the kids and hanging with his pal, Michael Lohan, father of Lindsay Lohan.
