Robin Williams’ children, widow settle estate dispute
Robin Williams’ children and his fourth wife, Susan Schneider Williams, have finally come to an agreement after a highly publicized dispute over the late comedian’s possessions. The details of the out-of-court settlement were not disclosed to the public, but the lawyers representing both parties in the case have stated that they believe the settlement will appease both sides.
Susan Williams obtained the home in Tiburon that she and the late actor shared before his death, along with the establishment of a trust that will enable her to maintain the property. The case began in December of 2014, when the widow filed a petition with the court stating that some of the actor’s belongings were removed from their shared home without her consent, and asking that the contents of their home be excluded from the items that would be left to his children, Zachary, Zelda, and Cody.
While the settlement is still awaiting court approval, it seems likely that it will be granted as the judge had previously encouraged the parties to come to reasonable terms outside of court. Mr. Williams’ widow and children will surely be glad to finally reach a conclusion in their disagreement over the distribution of the estate so that they can carry on with their mourning.
