Williams' wife and three children have until July 29 to settle the late actor's estate, a judge ruled on Monday
While his wife, Susan Williams, and his three children from previous marriages – Zachary, Zelda and Cody – have come to an agreement on how to split up thousands of his belongings, many of the late comedian’s personal effects are still being divided between his heirs.
On Monday, San Francisco Superior Court Judge Andrew Cheng allowed both sides until July 29 to come to a resolution, adding that he was pleased by their progress so far, according to the Associated Press.
Williams’ wife has asked to keep some of her husband’s items such as slippers, T-shirts and boxer shorts, her attorney, James Wagstaffe, said after the hearing.
But perhaps the most financially significant issue that remains to be resolved is the amount of money she will receive to maintain the San Francisco Bay area home the actor left her in his will.
A second appraisal on the property is expected to be conducted in the near future, AP reports.
The Mrs. Doubtfire star had left specific instructions that Susan be left with enough funds to keep up the home where they lived together – the same house where Williams committed suicide in August.
“I’m representing an emotionally grieving widow who’s trying to honor her husband’s wishes,” Wagstaffe told the judge.
Meredith Bushnell, the lawyer for Williams’ children, countered that their stepmother is simply using “delay tactics.”
While Williams left most of his estate to his three children, his wife has argued that she is entitled to many of the contents inside the Tiburon home he willed to her.
However, the children believe their father wanted them to have items left in the house – including clothing, watches, photos and awards – many of which he accumulated before his marriage to Susan.
