Attorneys representing the widow and children of the late Robin Williams were expected to face off in court today in California, the AP reports, with Williams’ widow in a legal battle with three children of the comedian from former marriages.

“The two sides were scheduled to go before a San Francisco judge, as court documents indicate they remain at odds over the division of Williams’ personal items and a reserve fund to maintain Susan Williams in the home she shared with Robin Williams,” the story reports.

The report adds: “Williams’ children from previous marriages — Zachary, Zelda and Cody Williams — say the estate’s trustees have determined the division of all of Williams’ personal property, and those decisions are final. They accuse Susan Williams of holding on to property that is theirs.”

An attorney for Susan Williams reportedly said in June that his client sought to hang onto items including her husband’s slippers, T-shirts and boxer shorts.

The two sides are also disputing the amount of the reserve fund set up for Susan Williams. Robin Williams died in August 2014, with his death ruled a suicide. He had reportedly been struggling with Parkinson’s disease, along with depression and anxiety.

Robin Williams’ last TV role was in the CBS sitcom “The Crazy Ones,” where Williams played the father and business partner of Sarah Michelle Gellar. The series aired for one season before being canceled in May 2014.

Williams received a nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy Series at the 4th Annual Critics’ Choice Awards for his work on the series, and was also nominated for a People’s Choice Award for the role.
